Mendy's heroic saves against Brentford will go down in history as one of the best saves in football.
Looking at the names of some players in the list, their performance is nothing compared to what Mendy is doing at Chelsea. I mean, Donnarumma as an example, how has he made that list? His tremendous moment was in Euros for Italy. In terms of the Clean sheet, Mendy is miles ahead of him, he [Mendy] conceded only two goals in the UCL round of 16 till the Final.
Sterling making the list ahead of Mendy is downgrading for every other goalkeeper out there. Their efforts go unnoticed by the football bodies purely because they are manning the post.
It's disappointing to be underrated by the French Football after having great runs of performance. Mendy has kept 30 clean sheets in 56 games for Chelsea. Plainly, the media is not raving so much about this accomplishment.
His saves last night against Brentford were all world-class saves. He's incomparable to any goalkeeper in the world right now. Six world-class saves gave Chelsea vital three points.
Mendy in the picture is the big edge that Chelsea has over their rivals. Liverpool would have conceded if they were in that tight position yesterday.
His saves reminded me of Mane and Koulibaly's words about his elision from the list. [Mane[ "it's is unacceptable. I do not understand these are things to deplore.'' [Koulibaly] ''it's a real shame that Edou isn't one of them.''
I strongly believe that it's just a matter of time for Mendy to get in that big position. He just has to be consistent and put in extra effort to get the recognition he deserves. For every Chelsea fan, Mendy is their hero and that's the most important thing for them.
