“I’m happy to score a goal but I think we have got to thank Edou,” Chilwell told the club’s official website. “I don’t know how many saves he made but there were a lot of very important saves and he does it every week for us.
“He bails us out, whether it’s once or twice, or in this game on several occasions. He’s a world-class goalkeeper and is the one we’ve got to thank.
“It just gives you confidence when you know you’ve got someone like that behind you that comes to collect the ball from crosses, is a brilliant shot-stopper and good with his feet.
“We see it every day in training but now he’s getting the credit he deserves and in these sorts of games where he makes big saves, he gets us the three points in the end.”
Edouard Mendy made a total of 6 saves against Brentford, holding firm to keep a clean sheet for Tuchel’s side.
Ben Chilwell has also earned his praise, having scored in 2 Chelsea victories since his return.
