Frank Lampard admitted Edouard Mendy has already become Chelsea’s number 1. The former Rennes goalkeeper helped Chelsea secure their first goalless draw under Lampard, against Sevilla in the Champions League.
The Senegalese recovered in time to be named in the starting lineup after missing the game against Southampton at the weekend. Speaking to the media after Sevilla game Lamaprd 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. As it stands he is the number one but that’s always up for grabs. But the way he’s playing I’m very happy. I was pleased with the professional element to the win. Seville 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“
