Tottenham vs Chelsea: Why Tuchel started Kepa instead of Mendy for EPL clash

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has named Kepa Arrizabalaga in his starting XI for Sunday’s Premier League game at Tottenham.

Kepa replaced Edouard Mendy in goal for the London Derby.

Mendy has been left out of the squad altogether, because of an apparent injury.

The 29-year-old Senegales clashed with Artem Dzyuba during Chelsea’s 1-0 win against Zenit in the Champions League in midweek.

He needed treatment on the field on hip, but managed to see out the rest of the game.
