Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell has singled Edouard Mendy for praise after his impressive performance in Chelsea’s goalless draw against Leeds United.

Mendy pushed a curling effort from Tyler Roberts over the bar before producing a wonderful save to deny Raphinha on the half-turn from close range.

“When it comes down to it, we can rely on Edu,” Chilwell told BT Sport post-match.

“Them one or two opportunities in a game that he has to concentrate (on) and make vital save for us. We know that he is going to do that for us.”

Mendy’s clean sheet against Leeds United is his 14th in the Premier League for Chelsea this season.
