Frank Lampard has been enjoying positive results since the arrival of Edouard Mendy from Ligue 1 side Rennes in the summer, The Sun.

The Senegalese shot-stopper made two stunning saves to keep his third clean sheet in their last Premier League game against Manchester United.

The 28-year-old made a point-blank stop from Marcus Rashford and another athletic save from Juan Mata in the scoreless draw.

Stats reveal the newly-signed shot-stopper to an extent has saved Lampard's job following a save percentage of 88.9 per cent while Kepa Arizzabalaga has kept out just 63.4 per cent of the shots he faced.

Mendy's passing accuracy is at the rate of 74.3 per cent but almost gifted United with an own goal after a ball he passed nearly went into the back of his own net.

However, Mendy has committed no errors leading to goals, with Kepa's gifting three so far this season.

Lampard was quick to praise the goalkeeper at the draw at Old Trafford:

"His performance was very good.
"You rely on your goalkeepers in those moments in a tight game, not full of many chances.
"Rashford's first chance was a mistake from us, the one at the end was a moment of quality from him. He showed us what he is there for.
"We brought him in for his quality. He showed great composure in the games he's played already and with the saves today in a tight you rely on them moments."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Edouard Mendy's recent comments could annoy Chelsea manager Frank Lampard after saying he has bigger ambitions than playing for the Premier League club.

The Senegalese joined the Stamford Bridge outfit barely days left to the end of the summer window and has already cemented his spot as number one in Lampard's starting XI.

The 28-year-old has made three appearances so far and has kept two cleans sheets which have impressed club legend, Petr Cech.
