While talking about the World Cup Roy Keane claimed that Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy was a weak link for Senegal in the campaign. The Chelsea player was knocked out of the World Cup by England in a 3-0 defeat. Both Chelsea players Edouard Mendy and Kalidou Koulibaly started in the match, whereas none of the Chelsea players featured in the English team. Chelsea’s transfer interest Jude Bellingham was considered as the star of the match. The youngster has been amazing this World Cup campaign for his national team.

He then recovered well after that and performed well against Qatar, which otherwise would have been embarrassing for the Senegal team.

Chelsea have been struggling this season, none of the players have stood out in the squad. They will be looking forward to improving their performance after the Premier League resumes on Boxing Day.
