Why Edouard Mendy May Become A Second Goalkeeper At Chelsea

Edouard Mendy’s contribution to Chelsea’s success can not be erased quickly from the mind of Chelsea fans. The Senegalese goal stopper joined the club in a period in which things were likely to go down in terms of goalkeeping but worked against bad expectations to retain the number one spot in the blues team.

To say more, he spurred Chelsea to their second UCL title by standing strong between the sticks against tough teams in the continent. His performances have also frozen Kepa out of the starting squad, despite the Spaniard’s price tag and age. The former Rennes’s player is also expected to continue as the first keeper because of his tactical awareness and brilliant saves, but one can see reasons why could become a second-choice goalkeeper.


1. Costly errors

Mendy has saved Chelsea from defeats in previous matches and has maintained good stats, but looking at his activities in recent preseason games, much cannot be said about his efforts. Against Tottenham, he conceded two cheap goals, which could have been prevented if he was not a bit far from the post. Kepa, on the other end, has done much in terms of improving his quality, and considering the method Thomas Tuchel uses in selecting his team, he may be rewarded with a chance in the starting eleven.

2. His age

Chelsea is among some of the clubs that have a policy of building their team around young players. Mendy may be an excellent goalkeeper, but he is a year close to 30, while Kepa is 24, and the youth policy that is being observed by the club can turn out to favor the latter.

2. Kepa’s price and new confidence

More money was invested in Arizabalaga, and his price tag is what can also cause Mendy to drop quickly to the second position if mistakes continue to pop up in his sheets. The blues are coming out with full hopes of winning something, and poor form is unlikely to be tolerated.
