Top 3: Chelsea players in the Champions League group stage as new signings shine

2. Edouard Mendy

All top teams need a top goalkeeper and, following Kepa’s struggles, it was an area of Chelsea’s squad that needed improving. Since arriving from Rennes, Edouard Mendy has steadied the Blues’ backline and was in great form in the Champions League. Helped his team secure valuable points in his five appearances, most notably at home against Sevilla and away to former club Rennes. The Senegal international made 15 saves in those games and conceded just once.
