Mendy clashed his ribs to the woodwork while trying to save Traore’s opening goal as Chelsea lost 2-1 on final EPL 2020/2021 day.
The Blues are likely not to have their favorite keeper, Edouard Mendy in the goalpost when they face Manchester City for the UEFA Champions League final.
Mendy has been the pick for important games and after clashing with the goal post today, could see Kepa handed an important role on the night of 29th May.
Thomas Tuchel is hopeful the injury isn’t as bad as feared as he confirms a scan will be conducted in order to ascertain the nature and severity of Mendy’s injury.
