Former Chelsea midfielder, Jody Morris, has claimed that Edouard Mendy’s performances of late put him ‘up there with Salah’.

The 42-year-old made the set of tweet remarks regarding the Blues’ No.1 following a man of the match outing between the sticks for Thomas Tuchel’s men in their 1-0 victory over Brentford.

It’s a result that restored the West London outfit’s lead at the top of the table with only a point separating them and chasers Liverpool.

To give credit where credit’s due, Mendy seemed to be largely responsible for helping our league rivals maintain their fragile lead at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Having said that, to compare the shotstopper to Mo Salah’s level of performance is perhaps overstepping the mark somewhat.

We are literally talking about a player who has earnt comparisons to Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo; a player who, at the moment, is arguably superior to the pair (on current form).

The Senegalese ‘keeper has been brilliant for Tuchel’s men, but our Egyptian King is quite simply playing on a level well above anyone else at this current point in time.
