Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has revealed that hardwork was behind his superb performance against Brentford at the weekend.
The Senegalese produced world-class saves to help Chelsea claim a 1-0 away victory.
In an interview with the Club’s website, Mendy said that it was difficult facing a physical side like Brentford.
“It’s down to hard work. I prepared during the week with my team-mates and coaches to help the team, and I was able to do that.
“We knew we were coming up against a very difficult team. They have shown that since they got promoted to the Premier League, especially at home against Arsenal and Liverpool. That makes it a really good result.
“It was very hard. There was so much intensity in the game, and a great atmosphere. We had to suffer and we suffered together. We passed the hurdle together. It’s a positive and now we need to build on this momentum in the Champions League.”
