New Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has been in spectacular form since signing for the club, and has only conceded one goal in six appearances for Chelsea.

Mendy has been number one for Chelsea since he joined, having ousted £70m signing Kepa Arrizabalaga, who has failed to impress even this season.

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has been impressed with the performance of Mendy, and has now stated what makes Mendy a special goalkeeper.

Speaking to Standard Sport, Zouma said: “He has been great, with the ball at his feet and he is big, too.

“He has presence and catches the ball when he comes out. He is talking a lot, doing a great job. He settled in very quickly, but we have to keep focused.

“I speak French and I know him a little bit from before. He is a top guy, a very clever guy.

“Easy to talk to. He is super-intelligent, very calm. He has no problems speaking English.

“We were talking French, but now he has learned some English very quickly.”
