Thomas Tuchel has revealed that  Edouard Mendy will remain Chelsea’s number one goalkeeper.

Kepa was in goal for the second game in a row when Chelsea beat Newcastle 2-0 in the Premier League on Monday night.

With Tuchel, Mendy has conceded just once in four games and it was an own goal after a mistake by defender Antonio Rudiger.

However, the Frenchman was left out against Newcastle, and Kepa retained his place after keeping a clean sheet in the FA Cup win over Barnsley on Thursday.

“I am happy Kepa continued with a second clean sheet. It was the moment to let him feel the rhythm and build up his confidence.

“It was clear before that we hoped for the best performance, but Edou will be in goal from now on as he recovered physically and mentally and right now, he is the number one.”
