Frank Lampard has confirmed that Edouard Mendy will have to wait to make his debut for Chelsea given the goalkeeper has barely trained ahead of the side’s clash with West Brom.
Mendy completed a switch from Rennes to Stamford Bridge earlier this week after the two clubs reached a £22million agreement for the 28-year-old Senegal international.
Kepa Arrizabalaga has fallen some way short of expectations following his world-record £71m move back in 2018 and the Spaniard did himself no favours last weekend when he was partly at fault for both of Sadio Mane’s goals in Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat to Liverpool.
However, Kepa could be in line to continue his run in the side at the Hawthorns this weekend, with Mendy yet to take part in serious training after flying into the UK on Thursday. (Metro)
