The Senegalese managed to help Blues to UCL glory after an impressive performance at the back of Tuchel’s three-man defense
Chelsea’s defense line did witness a major change amid Thomas Tuchel’s take-over from Frank Lampard who was sacked after series of fruitless runs.
Switching from a back 4 to a back three influenced their result a lot, causing them to go from the team with the most goals conceded in the previous UCL season to the team with the least goals conceded in the just concluded season.
With Edouard Mendy in between the sticks, Chelsea recorded clean sheets in most of their games as it was even hard to beat the defense line, and if one does, he would be faced with a super keeper in the goal post.
Ahead of the new season, the former Rennes goalkeeper has taken out time to share ideas on why the Blues were so solid at their backline.

“I think that throughout the season we have got to know each other and each one’s preferences,” Mendy said of Chelsea’s defense.
“We are very solid together and have managed to keep many clean sheets. We are very united and we play as if it’s a brother playing next to us.”
