Senegalese and Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has delivered a brilliant save to denied Almirón’s volleys from scoring as he keep the blues in the game before the break.
Jorginho’s called for a foul out wide, level with the top of the box. In comes the free kick, essentially a corner from a great angle. Rüdiger heads clear, but only as far as Almirón, who volleys one towards goal that Mendy’s able to push wide.
Mendy was able to push wide Almirón’s volleys before the break as the game ended goalless in the half time, Chelsea are really hustling as Newcastle taken the game to them very hard without given Thomas Tuchel’s side to explore or show case their skills inside the box.
