Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy impressed as the Blues drew goalless at Leeds United on Saturday afternoon.

The 29 year old goalkeeper made some excellent saves to stop Leeds United from scoring against Chelsea.

Despite Mendy’s impressive performance against Leeds, Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand insists the Senegalese goalkeeper has one weakness in his game.

According to Ferdinand, Mendy needs to improve on his distribution with his feet.

Ferdinand told BT Sport: “I can talk about it (Mendy’s impact) from a defender’s perspective, confidence just flies throughout the team.

“When you look back behind you and think if I make a mistake there’s still one person behind me who I can lean on to make a save and pull me out a bad situation and he does that.

“I think he’s got a real commanding presence. With his feet I think he’ll improve, he needs to. But everything else in terms of a goalkeeper the most important thing is saving the ball, I think he’s very sound.”
