Frank Lampard needs the impending arrival of Edouard Mendy to be exactly that for his reign at Chelsea.

The 28-year-old Mendy is expected to arrive at Stamford Bridge in a £25m deal and demote Kepa, a £72m signing on a seven-year contract back in 2018, to the bench.

Just how does he compare to Kepa? And is he as good as Alisson and Ederson and Liverpool and City - the two clubs Lampard is in hot pursuit of?

Depsite playing eight less games, Mendy has 12 clean sheets compared to Kepa's 10.He also has a dramatically better goals conceded record - 32 goals have gone in against Mendy compared to 59 against Kepa.Mendy's save percentage is higher - 69.8 per cent compared to 58.5 - and he has only conceded five goals from outside the box.

The one notable aspect where Mendy trails Kepa is in pass completion.

The Liverpool No 1's passing accuracy is 84.8 per cent and Ederson is 84.4.They both rise above Mendy in terms of clean sheets - Ederson has 18 and Alisson 15 compared to Mendy's 12.Mendy is close to the duo on save percentage.

So there is definite reason for optimism among Chelsea fans at the prospect of Mendy joining.
