🇸🇳 Tuchel explains mixed feelings about Mendy’s great form

Chelsea's manager Thomas Tuchel has offered quite an intelligent concern about Edouard Mendy's great form for the Blues.

The Senegalese goalkeeper has been the subject of brilliant performances in Chelsea's goalposts, which has prompted fans and pundits to declare him as the best keeper in the English Premier League.

According to Tuchel, the praise is brilliant for the player's confidence, but the German coach would rather prefer internal credit instead of too much attention from the media and public.

"I don’t like it too much when he’s in the spotlight," Tuchel told the club's media.

"I like it more when he gets the praise from us for one-and-a-half saves, for being concentrated, for pushing the line up high, and clearing some situations as a sweeper. If he is more or less invisible to the spectators in the stadium then I’m super happy. It means we did not allow many chances.

"He’s been in the spotlight the last games and on one hand that’s not the most satisfying feeling for a coach. On the other, it is because we can rely on him. We have to accept things are not too easy at the moment. I even like these tough matches and tough moments because it sharpens our mentality," the German concluded.

Meanwhile, the 29-year-old keeper is expected to start against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday in a Premier League game at the Lillywhites.
