Following in footsteps: Uncanny Cech record Mendy can match with clean sheet against Liverpool
Edouard Mendy has had an ideal first season and more with the Blues, keeping clean sheets in almost every other game so far.
The Senegalese keeper has kept 27 clean sheets in his first 47 games at the club, bringing him uncannily close to a Petr Cech record.
The Chelsea legend had 28 clean sheets in his first 48 games after he arrived at Stamford Bridge.
If Mendy can keep a clean sheet against Liverpool on Saturday, then he will match Cech’s exact record after 48 games.
After a few seasons without a settled top keeper, it is wonderful to have Mendy between the sticks carrying on Cech’s legacy
