Edouard Mendy has almost finished a full season with Chelsea, and we’re starting to get an impression of what he’s all about.
The Senegalese goalkeeper is a brilliant shot stopper, but a little shaky with his feet, and today’s game has summarised that brilliantly.
Fulham put a lot of pressure on him when he had possession and got some joy, but at the crucial moment of the first half he made the difference. The ball was deflected back in the wrong direction as Mendy dived, but his superb reactions allowed him to stick out a left hand strong enough to get the ball clear.
