Mendy has since proven to be one of the bargain signings, helping the Blues win the Champions League and the Uefa Super Cup.

The Spain international was brought into Thomas Tuchel’s side in Sunday’s 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur after Mendy was unable to shake off an injury suffered against Zenit St Petersburg.

Speaking on his relationship and how he gets along with Mendy in his latest Chelsea interview, Arrizabalaga said: 

“Edou and I have a very good relationship. We are training together every day and support each other whoever is playing.

“You could see in the Super Cup the relationship we have, he was one of the first players to congratulate me after the penalty shoot-out and of course we celebrated together.

“Hopefully he can return to training soon from his injury.”
