Senegal international Mendy has kept two clean sheets in his first three games, with Lampard confirming he is now first choice.

But on Thursday Mendy said Chelsea’s goalkeepers have put aside their personal rivalry in pursuit of collective glory.

‘I have a very good relationship with Kepa,’ he said.

‘The group of goalkeepers we have, we’re all very open and all of us understand the team is the most important thing here… our relationships are all very good, we work well together and we’re pushing each other every day to improve ourselves and improve each other. We know as goalkeepers we have to stay unified and united and that is what is happening at the moment.’

Mendy is fit again having missed last weekend’s 3-3 draw against Southampton, when Kepa made another error and Hakim Ziyech, the £38million signing from Ajax, made his debut.
