Former Chelsea defender Scott Minto made a bogus claim when he said that Edouard Mendy has been the best signing of all the six new players that joined the club during the summer transfer window.
Former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton has towed in that same direction and even went a step higher, as he selected Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy as his signing of the season across the entire Premier League.
“Edouard Mendy. Chelsea’s big problem was their goalkeeper kept chucking ’em in. That’s now stopped,” Sutton told the Daily Mail.
“I’m not saying Mendy is the greatest keeper in the world, but he’s helped Frank Lampard out of a jam and he cost £22m, which is change down the back of the settee for top-flight clubs.”
Chelsea have conceded 10 goals in the Premier League this season, and coincidentally, Mendy has conceded just once while keeping in the Premier League.
