    Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has confirmed in his Friday press conference that goalkeeper Edouard Mendy will be back in-between the sticks tomorrow. Chelsea host rivals Manchester City on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge.

    Thomas Tuchel confirms that £22m Chelsea player will start tomorrow v Manchester CityTuchel has announced that Mendy will be in the starting XI after missing the last couple of fixtures with a rib injury. The £22million goalkeeper sat out last weekend’s league win against Tottenham, as well as the midweek Carabao Cup victory against Aston Villa.

    Blues understudy goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga did a great job stepping in, but the usual number one is returning to the starting line-up tomorrow. Edouard Mendy comeback a massive boost
    For Kepa, he can be delighted with the last week.

    The 26-year-old put in two strong performances when given the chance and the manager knows that he can rely on him throughout the course of the season. However, it’s a no-brainer that Mendy starts this weekend.

    It’s still so early into the new league season, but there is the feeling of a huge game against Man City. If the Blues are to get three points tomorrow, you’d suspect they will need their brilliant goalkeeper on his A-game. Mendy’s record of 29 clean sheets in 50 Chelsea appearances is staggering and he breathes confidence into the back-three ahead of him.
