Senegal International’s clean sheet record was close to what Costa Rican achieved during his spell at Real Madrid.
Chelsea’s Edward Mandy is the second goalkeeper to win a clean sheet in 10 UEFA Champions League appearances.
Senegal International put in an incredible performance on Tuesday night as the Blues recorded a 1-0 win over FC Zenit St. Petersburg at Stamford Bridge.
Romelu Lukaku of Belgium scored the decisive goal in the 69th minute with the help of Cesar Azplicoita.
Mandy – Fully protected by Azpelicueta, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Ruidger – moved to the handful of testing opportunities created by Blue White Sky Blues.
After blocking the Russian Premier League from finding the net in England, the African star got his 10th shutout in his 13th appearance.
Only Costa Rican international Keller Navas has achieved this mark in lesser games (11) during his spell in the Spanish elite division side Real Madrid.
The 29-year-old defender was lured into a 22-million-euro (31 31-million) deal with League One outfit Rennes as the kings of the English top flight six times tried to find stability between the sticks as costly mistakes crept into the Cape Arizabalaga game. Were gone
Admirably, he has since been one of the signatories to the deal, which helped London win the Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup.
In a recent chat with the aim.Former Nigeria international Dale Olorondare claims that Chelsea’s Premier League title ambitions are largely on Mandy’s shoulders, not Romelu Lukaku’s.
Even when Chelsea’s back line looks shaky, Mandy showed a class to get the oak out of the fire. That is why, despite numerous attempts, Arsenal did not score a goal.
“Personally, I think he is the key man in his ambitions to emerge as a Premier League player, not Lukaku as many have already said.
“Without Belgium, I’m still convinced that the Blues have a way to score, but in the area of goal-keeping. [Arrizabalaga] Mandy can’t do the wonderful thing she’s doing right now.
“Besides, I feel like they [Mendy] He is not getting the acceptance he deserves. He is pure class and Chelsea are very lucky to have him in their squad.
Mandy is expected to be in the goal when Tomas Tachel’s men face Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday.
