Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard has admitted Edouard Mendy has already become Chelsea’s first-choice goalkeeper.
The former Rennes stopper helped the Blues secure Lampard’s first goalless draw as Chelsea boss in Tuesday’s Champions League stalemate with Sevilla.
The Senegal international shot-stopper was rushed to return after a thigh injury to start Chelsea’s opening Champions League game.
When asked if Mendy is already his starter, Lampard said: “At the moment yes; he’s shown his quality. The way he’s played, he’s played very well, that’s two clean sheets for him already.
“Sevilla are a top team in European football, no doubt. The concentration and focus to get the result was big from the team.
“We made a lot of good decisions tonight, so it’s a really nice place for us to build from. I think it’s a positive result. The clean sheet was a big deal for us.”
