Chelsea had a good game in the Premier League last weekend, as the Blues defeated Aston Villa 3-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Despite the 3-0 scoreline, it was a very difficult game nevertheless, and Edouard Mendy was at his best to prevent Villa from finding the net.

After the weekend round of games, BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks included three Chelsea players in his team of the week, as Mendy, Thiago Silva and Romelu Lukaku all made the cut.

Crooks was full of praise for the Chelsea goalkeeper as he said: “The save from Ollie Watkins was brilliant. Mendy was leaning towards the right of his goal as Watkins turned inside to shoot with his right foot but pulled the ball towards the left-hand post. Mendy’s adjustment to turn the ball around the post was outstanding.

“The Senegal international then made two further saves from Tyrone Mings and Ezri Konsa. The second save he made was when he was still recovering from the first shot. This was one of those games where if Villa had played all night they wouldn’t have found a way past Mendy.”
