Chelsea player thanks Mendy for Brentford victory: “He is getting the credit he deserves”

Chelsea left wing-back Ben Chilwell scored Chelsea’s winner in the 1-0 victory over Brentford on Saturday but has thanked Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy for the victory.

Mendy had an inspired final quarter of the game denying Ivan Toney, Saman Ghoddos and Pontus Jansson – with his face – before saving the very best for last: a stunning reaction stop to divert Christian Norgaard’s overhead kick onto the bar and over.

“It was pretty much hell on earth the last 20 minutes,” said Chilwell.

“We have got Edou to thank, he’s amazing. He is getting the credit he deserves.”

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel also hailed Mendy for his performance against Brentford.

Tuchel said: “He was absolutely decisive to escape with a clean sheet. He was very strong, throughout the whole match.”
