Chelsea fans have long been calling Edouard Mendy the best goalkeeper in the Premier League.
Mendy, who joined in the summer of 2020, was instrumental as the Blues won the UEFA Champions League last season, conceding just three times in 12 matches in the competition.
The Senegalese international has continued his fine form this term, keeping nine clean sheets across 15 games across all competitions as Thomas Tuchel’s side currently sit top of the table despite drawing 1-1 with Burnley on Saturday.
Liverpool fans have often maintained that Alisson is a better ‘keeper than the former Rennes shot-stopper, but the Brazilian endured a torrid Sunday afternoon as the Reds lost 3-2 to West Ham United.
Alisson scored an own goal, tipping a Pablo Fornals corner into his own net before Fornals and Kurt Zouma fired in a second and third in the second half.
After the game, Chelsea fans took to social media to reiterate that Mendy is superior to the former Roma ace. Here is what a select few on Twitter said.
@RajanCarefree : “Mendy being better than Alisson sounds controversial but it really isn’t.”
@cfckieraa : “mendy > alisson.”
@jamiewiIkinson : “£67m for Alisson Becker £22m for Edouard Mendy Lessons to be learned from Chelsea when it comes to making value-for-money goalkeeper purchases.”
@raphinha_fan : “Alisson let the Mendy comparisons get to his head? That’s crazy.”
@CfcSheikh : “They compared Alisson to Edouard Mendy…”
@DZKurtisss : “All that Mendy talk from Liverpool fans for Alisson to drop a stinker.”
@ConnCFC : “Never compare Alisson to Mendy ever again. Mendy so far clear.”
@yxngbaz : “Mendy is so much better than Alisson.”
