UEFA CL - Chelsea: How the English press reacted to Edouard Mendy's performance

Edouard Mendy was given a failing grade by the English press after his performance against Real Madrid on Wednesday. The Senegalese goalkeeper conceded three goals. And he made a huge mistake on Karim Benzema's third goal. Some English media have spared the best goalkeeper of the last AFCON.

Edouard Mendy did not have a great night on Wednesday. Chelsea were beaten at home by Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final (1-3). The Senegalese goalkeeper made a huge blunder on the third goal of Karim Benzema, author of a hat-trick.

The English press did not completely dismiss Edouard Mendy despite this poor performance. The FM editorial staff gave him a 2.5 rating for his performance, but other media were less harsh. The London Evening Standard gave him a 4. "Unable to stop Benzema's sublime headers but guilty of a shocking error on the Frenchman's third, with a poor pass to Rüdiger", allowing the striker to pounce, the English media said.

Football London went one better and gave him a grade of five, saying: "It was not the Chelsea goalkeeper's finest night in Europe's premier club competition. He could do nothing about either of Karim Benzema's first-half goals, both of which were excellent headers; but he was completely at fault for Real Madrid's third goal of the night.

In just two games, Edouard Mendy has conceded seven goals. The Blues were thrashed 4-1 by Brentford in the 30th round of the Premier League a week ago.
