Senegalese goalkeeper Edouard Mendy kept his clean sheet, when Chelsea beat West Ham United (3-0) on Monday evening, at the conclusion the English Premier League’s 14th round.
With this victory, Chelsea rose to the 5th place, with 25 points, on goal difference against Tottenham, and 6 points ahead of leaders Liverpool.
But Mendy did not contribute to his team’s victory in yesterday’s match, as he made no save, and his team-defenders ensured that the goal was protected.
However, this did not prevent Mendy from achieving a new special record in his first season with Chelsea, which he moved to during the last summer transfer period, coming from French Rennes.
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reported that Mendy kept his clean sheet for the 10th out of 16 matches he played with Chelsea under coach Frank Lampard in all competitions.
Mendy surpassed substitute goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who kept a clean sheet in 10 of 45 games he played under manager Lampard.
