Edouard Mendy thanked his Chelsea teammates and the club’s staff for being very welcome of him and set his target for Sunday’s derby against Tottenham Hotspur.

The 28-year-old has cemented his spot as Chelsea’s No.1 since his arrival in September.

He has featured in 10 games so far, conceding just three goals, including Rennes’ strike on Tuesday.

Frank Lampard has been full of praise for the new signing’s quick adaptation, and Mendy said his teammates have made it easy for him to adjust to a new club.

“Everyone has done everything to help me integrate as smoothly as possible, the players, the staff, they have all helped me,” the goalkeeper told Chelsea’s official website.

“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 [Zouma] and Thiago [Silva], they speak French which is good for me, but I can communicate well with the other players too, and I am really enjoying it.”

Having won all of their last six games in all competitions, the Blues will face a tough challenge against their London rivals and the current Premier League leaders Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend.

As you would expect, Mendy said he is fully focused on the upcoming battle at Stamford Bridge.

“The objective now is to do a good match against Tottenham on Sunday,” he 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.”
