Chelsea signed Edouard Mendy from Rennes for a fee of £22m, and the Senegal international has had a very good start to life at Chelsea.

Mendy has kept a clean sheet in six of the eight games he has played this season, and has conceded just twice in the process.

Mendy has ousted Kepa Arrizabalaga as the club’s number one, and it’s not hard to see why, as his coming has led to the defence being stronger.

Meanwhile, even his teammate Ben Chilwell, has hailed Mendy’s performance, revealing that the Senegalese make the post look smaller than it actually is.

“If you see Edou every day in training he makes the goal look so small. I don’t know if you see it on TV but he’s absolutely huge!” Chilwell said, as quoted by the club’s official website.

“As a person he is probably one of the most laid-back people you are going to meet. He’s settled in very quickly, he gets on with everyone, he speaks great English which has probably helped him a lot, and he’s super easy to get on with.”
