Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has reacted to criticisms trailing his mistimed tackle which resulted to the Blues lone goal loss last night at Goodison Park.
The 28-year-old recklessly brought down Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the 18-yard box in the 22nd minute to hand The Toffees their eventual winner as Gylfi Sigurdsson calmly slotted home the spot-kick.
Speaking to BT Sport in the aftermath of the loss, the Senegalese admitted to misjudging his tackle but expressed confidence in the Blues chances of picking a silverware this season.
“I thought I’d win the ball. It all happened so fast, I judged the tackle wrongly and could have done better”
“We still have a good chance this season”
