Thomas Tuchel’s decision to drop Cup goalkeeper Kepa in favour of Edouard Mendy has already proven to be a wise move.

The Blues boss, who relegated Kepa back to his bench for Sunday’s EFL Cup final against Liverpool, has just watched on as regular number one Mendy pulled off a truly incredible double-save to deny Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool at the 30-minute mark.

Following a long-range strike from stand-in midfielder Naby Keita, Mendy then found himself faced with a blistering effort from striker Sadio Mane.
