Mendy reveals secret behind his settling in so quickly at Chelsea

Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has explained how he has been able to settle in fast at the club, following his summer arrival. 

The Senegal international was signed from Rennes during the summer and has become a key member of Frank Lampard's side.   

The 28-year-old has managed to keep seven clean sheets in 10 appearances so far and has been lauded for his influence on and off the pitch. 

"Everyone has done everything to help me integrate as smoothly as possible, the players, the staff, they have all helped me," he revealed. 

"I respond to that by devoting myself to being the best goalkeeper I can be on the pitch, by doing what I can every day in training and in matches. I will continue like that to keep trying to help the team. 

"I have joined a very good club. I feel good in this team. I have got to know them and gained an affinity with them which helps during games. Of course with Kurt and Thiago they speak French which is good for me, but I can communicate well with the other players too and I am really enjoying it,"

Mendy and Chelsea's next assignment is a London derby against leaders Tottenham over the weekend, and the goalie is already looking forward to it. 

"The objective now is to do a good match against Tottenham on Sunday," the 28-year-old added. 

"I don’t think beyond that. We want to keep the good run we have had going, and to do that we need to maintain those high levels in training and in the match itself,"

The Blues are currently third on the standings on 18 points, two off their weekend opponents.
