Chelsea have got some top class players, but is anyone in the squad really indispensable?

Former Chelsea star, Joe Cole, has named goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy, as the club’s most important player this season.

Mendy was in top form as Chelsea went on to win the Champions League last season, and this season, he has been extraordinary as well.

His performance against Brentford has been hailed as superb, and Joe Cole believes the Senegal international is Chelsea’s most important player at the moment.

“Some of the saves he’s made over the last six months have been out of this world,” Cole told BT Sport after the 4-0 win over Malmo.

“Kepa was having a real tough time, so they bought Mendy in. People didn’t know if he was going to be a stop-gap or not. But he’s repaid the faith in him from Petr Cech.

“He’s arguably their most important player alongside Kante. He will win you games.”
