ENGLAND – Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has commented on goalkeeper Eduoard Mendy’s performance following his side’s Carabao Cup fourth-round defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday night.
Timo Werner scored his first goal for Chelsea to give them a 19th-minute lead, but Jose Mourinho’s side was level with seven minutes left.
Erik Lamela prodded the ball past Mendy, after a mix-up between Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori as the match ended 1-1.
Tottenham went on to win 5-4 via penalty kicks after Chelsea’s Mason Mount missed his spot-kick.
Speaking after the game, Lampard said at his post-match press conference that he was very pleased with Mendy’s display against Spurs, adding that the Senegalese international took good command of his box.
“I thought he [Mendy] was very good,” Lampard said.
“He made a couple of good saves. Came and caught a few balls. Very very pleased with every part of his game.”
Chelsea’s next match is against Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.
