Edouard Mendy joined Chelsea from French club Rennes during the summer transfer window and has displaced Kepa Arrizabalaga as Chelsea’s number one goalkeeper.

According to Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma, Mendy has quickly become Chelsea’s number one goalkeeper because of his confidence on the ball, a huge frame which helps him claim the ball from the crosses and being vocal on the pitch.

“He has been great, with the ball at his feet and he is big, too,” Kurt Zouma said about Edouard Mendy, as quoted by the Evening Standard.

“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.”

Mendy became the first Chelsea goalkeeper since Petr Cech himself in 2004 to keep a clean sheet in his first three Premier League starts following the 3-0 victory over Burnley on Saturday.
