Chelsea fans were left in awe of Edouard Mendy after he made an incredible double save in the Carabao Cup final against Liverpool.
The Premier League giants played out an entertaining first half at Wembley despite the score being 0-0 at the break, with both teams spurning significant chances in front of goal.
Liverpool’s best chance came through Senegal attacker Sadio Mane, who saw his close-range effort denied by countryman Mendy in emphatic fashion, a save that went a long way in vindicating Thomas Tuchel’s decision to drop Kepa Arrizabalaga for the final.
Arrizabalaga had started five League Cup matches this term but the Spaniard was left on the bench for the clash against Jurgen Klopp and Co, giving Mendy the platform to showcase his undeniable talent.
Plenty of Chelsea supporters took to social media to claim that their goalkeeper is better than Alisson Becker, who was benched by Klopp for the Wembley showpiece. Here is what a select few on Twitter said.
@N1cBenedict : “Save of the match.”
@J0ELEMBIlD : “Mendy is better than Alisson, he’s better than your GK.”
@_SendaRaven : “Best in the world.”
@theeskengman : “Never want to hear Kepa starting over Mendy in finals ever again. That is why HE is the best goalkeeper in the world!”
@cfcsafa : “BEST KEEPER IN THE WORLD.”
@CFC_Fox : “GREATEST GOALKEEPER IN THE WORLD.”
@JonathonNixonn : “Mendy > alisson all day everyday, I’ll scrap anyone who disagrees.”
@Denzo_CFC : “They tried saying Alisson was comparable to this guy. Mendy is the best in the world.”
