With Chelsea gradually establishing their place at the top of the Premier League table and are the defending Champions League winners – this sort of success doesn’t come by without a strong team!
However, some players are always more important than others. Asked to name Chelsea’s most important player, Ruben Loftus-Cheek told Chelseafc.com: “We have a lot of players in the team who bring different qualities but Edouard Mendy has been fantastic in goal.
“He’s been a constant from the start of the season and some of the saves he’s made have kept us in winning situations.
“That’s what you need if you’re trying to win a title, to have someone like that behind you who can always save you after a mistake. He can get you out of trouble and he’s been fantastic.”
Mendy has kept the most clean sheets across Europe’s top five leagues since Thomas Tuchel’s arrival and won the UEFA Men’s Goalkeeper of the Year a few weeks ago.
There’s surely a case to be made for him being the team’s most important player!
