Chelsea fans will be relieved by this news after the terrible performance of current number one ‘keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga against Liverpool at the weekend.

Lampard has been busy by bringing in big names in Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva, and Mendy looks another important addition to the squad.
