Chelsea have reportedly agreed terms with Rennes to sign Edouard Mendy with the deal to be announced next week and it comes after another poor performance from Kepa Arrizabalaga. Chelsea were in action on Sunday against defending Premier League champions Liverpool in an early test for Frank Lampard's side.

The Chelsea boss would have likely been pleased with his side's start to the match as they frustrated Liverpool in the opening exchanges.

That all changed on the stroke of half time though after Andreas Christensen was sent off for hauling down Sadio Mane.

Lampard brought on Fikayo Tomori for Kai Havertz at the break to try and shore up his defence.

But the Liverpool onslaught soon started with Chelsea pegged back in their own half.

Just five minutes after the restart and Liverpool took the lead when Mane tapped in from a Roberto Firmino cross.

Lampard though would have been furious with the manner of Liverpool's second though as Kepa lazily attempted to play the ball out, only for an onrushing Mane to steal the ball and tap in for his second of the game.

Chelsea did have a chance to halve the deficit when Thiago brought down Timo Werner in the box, but Alisson saved Jorginho's penalty.

The Blues were unable to fashion any other chances to mount a fightback though with Liverpool seeing out a comfortable 2-0 win.
