Edouard Mendy Becomes 2nd Chelsea Goalie To Start With Three Straight EPL Clean Sheets



Edouard Mendy who is a Senegalese footballer is now the second Chelsea goalkeeper in history to start with three straight Premier League clean sheets in his career at Stamford Bridge.

This is a great development for the top African goalkeeper who has been impressive since he joined Chelsea from Rennes.

Kepa Arrizabaga's poor performances in the Premier League and other competitions forced Frank Lampard and his chiefs to go for the signing of Mendy.

The 28-year-old was said to have been recommended by former Blues' goalie Petr Cech who was superb during his active playing days in the Premier League.

On Saturday, October 31, Mendy played his third Premier League game for Chelsea against Burnley in which the Stamford Bridge landlords won 3-0.

Mendy was not troubled in the encounter as Burnley forwards were unable beat him in the Premier League tie.

Petr Cech was the first Chelsea goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet in his first three Premier League games for the Blues in 2004.

Mendy has now broken his record and the Senegalese will want to achieve more success this term with Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are currently occupying fourth position on the Premier League table with 12 points after seven games played.
