A little harsh, granted Navas fucked up against City but he came up clutch for Real (and Costa Rica) in big moments for years.

yeah maybe, but I'm not a fan of Navas. Real is a fair point, while Costa Rica not so much imo (different standards).

This has been my issue with Kepa all along. Think goalie is the position where you want a towering giant with huge reach - being able to attack crosses is a massive attribute. Navas simply does not have the physical attributes for any of that.

Mendy has been class since we got him.  I can't believe there was actually discussion at one point that we need someone "world class" after he had a stretch of 3 average games or something. Hones

Whether Mendy is truly the real deal for us in the long run remains to be seen but he's not the problem right now. There are problems further ahead of him.

Big Ed must have thought the same thing as we all did. Why?  Just why?

Ed is capable of the sublime as demonstrated today. Kepa is not. So why risk it? Even if Kepa does not have his usual howlers anymore,he still is not a great. Kepa never was a good shot stopper so why risk it vs one  of the better distance shooters in the league.

Mendy injured and has big pain in hos, ribs. With Kepa, we will never win the CL

It was a knock...he was subbed off as a precaution.

If it was serious, he wouldn't have sat on the bench comfortably.

Never underestimate the irony 😄 Kepa plays, produces an absolute masterclass and we sell him for a nice cash lol.

On a serious note - yeah, all City would need to do is shoot from distance and that's it.

Edouard Mendy named Premier League Goalkeeper of the Season

https://www.sportsmole.co.uk/football/Chelsea/end-of-season-awards/news/edouard-mendy-named-premier-league-goalkeeper-of-the-season_448926.html

Chelsea's Edouard Mendy has fought off fierce competition from Emiliano Martinez and Ederson to win the Premier League Goalkeeper of the Season award in the annual Sports Mole Reader Awards.

Mendy only joined Chelsea in September, quickly usurping Kepa Arrizabalaga as number one and going on to keep 16 clean sheets during his debut Premier League campaign.

Only Manchester City's Ederson kept more clean sheets, but the Golden Gloves winner has to make do with third place, garnering 24% of your votes.

Aston Villa's Martinez kept 15 clean sheets and finished second in the voting, narrowly above Ederson with 24.6% of the votes.

However, both trailed Mendy, whose efforts to help earn Chelsea a top-four finish won him 29.3% of the votes.

Liverpool's Alisson Becker, who scored a crucial goal in the run-in, was fourth with 13.8% of the votes, while Kasper Schmeichel earned 8.4%.

Mendy kept nine clean sheets in 12 games in this season's Champions League - no keeper has ever kept more in a single campaign in the competition (level with Santiago Canizares for Valencia in 2000-01 and Keylor Navas for Real Madrid in 2015-16).

His is one of the most touching stories here. 6 years ago he was living off jobless' allowance and now he is a Champions League winner. No wonder he was so moved. I was too. When he laid down on the ground covering his eyes. And how gracefully he first touched that trophy. Absolute chills.
