Frank Lampard praised Edouard Mendy after Chelsea’s 0-0 draw at Manchester United.
The goalkeeper, recently signed from Rennes, produced a couple of fine saves in the stalemate at Old Trafford.
“His performance was very good,” Blues boss Lampard said.
“You rely on your goalkeeper in moments during games.
“He showed what he’s there for. I’m delighted with the saves today.”
Lampard also insisted that Chelsea should have been awarded a penalty for a foul on Cesar Azpilicueta by Harry Maguire.
