Edouard Mendy has registered seven clean sheets in 9 appearances for the Blues.


Goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has revealed everyone at Chelsea "has helped him integrate" into the west London club "as smoothly as possible".


The 28-year-old has had a brilliant start to life in the English top flight, registering an impressive seven clean sheets in 9 appearances for Frank Lampard's team.


However, he insists that he is motivated to continue being 'the best goalkeeper I can be on the pitch, by doing what I can every day in training'.


‘Everyone has done everything to help me integrate as smoothly as possible, the players, the staff, they have all helped me,’ Mendy, who signed from Rennes for £22million back in September, told the club's official website.


‘I respond to that by devoting myself to being the best goalkeeper I can be on the pitch, by doing what I can every day in training and in matches. I will continue like that to keep trying to help the team.


‘I have joined a very good club. I feel good in this team. I have got to know them and gained an affinity with them which helps during games. Of course with Kurt and Thiago they speak French which is good for me, but I can communicate well with the other players too and I am really enjoying it.’


Speaking of Chelsea's Champions League game against his former side Rennes in the Champions League on Tuesday night, the Frenchman said: ‘Before the match I had a lot of emotions because I know the journey to the ground and then when I saw the stadium I had a wonderful feeling inside.


‘Then my thoughts turned to the principle feeling which was to win the match and secure qualification. That’s what we did. It was a difficult game, we knew it would be, but we should great spirit to fight until the end.


‘After the game, it was great to see everyone who works around the stadium, the players and the staff, and talk to them.


‘The objective now is to do a good match against Tottenham on Sunday.


‘I don’t think beyond that. We want to keep the good run we have had going, and to do that we need to maintain those high levels in training and in the match itself.’
