Chelsea became the first team to stop Tottenham’s scoring streak in the Premier League thanks to the defense of goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.
Chelsea and Tottenham were unable to find a goal in the most remarkable big battle of the Premier League round 10. With a squad of both sides in high form combined with the tactical certainty of both manager Frank Lampard and Jose Mourinho, both defenses have been impenetrable despite some delicious opportunities. appearance.
This is an unusual match for both sides because each team has played quite coherently since the beginning of the season and scored regularly in the Premier League. Until this match, Chelsea had only one game without scoring (against MU) and the same thing was Tottenham (against Everton), and each team had high-form strikers like Werner, Kane and Son Heung Min. .
But if Tottenham defended with the familiar Jose Mourinho style, Chelsea played for most of this match and still faced a few dangerous Spurs counterattacks. However, they have successfully kept a clean sheet thanks to the certainty of the defenders quartet, the form of the back line continues to be the driving force for Chelsea to be in the championship competition group.
Especially since there was goalkeeper Edouard Mendy in the wooden frame, Chelsea has achieved defensive achievements that they never had when Kepa started. The last Tottenham draw was the 5th match in the Premier League this season, Mendy kept a clean sheet, thereby leading him to lead the league in this category. He has only conceded 3 goals and has kept a clean sheet in 8/11 matches.
With midfielder Thiago Silva – Kurt Zouma defending front, Mendy and the Chelsea defenders ended the scoring streak of Tottenham’s Kane & Son, as Spurs has consistently scored in the Premier League since the game. lost to Everton early in the season. Chelsea has the second least conceding record with 10 goals (Tottenham conceded 9 goals), but up to 9 of them have come in the match Kepa and Willy Caballero started.
Although Chelsea spent more than £ 200 million buying troops this summer and so far almost every rookie has proven worthwhile, no one is leaving a bigger mark than Edouard Mendy, because even if Thiago Silva played, Chelsea still conceded 3 goals against West Brom because of Kepa. Chelsea’s defense is equally sure when they first started being led by Mourinho, and the great success is thanks to the reliable temple guard.
