Chelsea fans have lashed out at Edouard Mendy calling for his replacement with Kepa Arrizabalaga as Chelsea first choice goalkeeper, following the defeat suffered on Sunday.
The Senegal international gifted the Peacocks a goal as the Blues went two goals down in the first 45 minutes.
After collecting a back pass from Thiago Silva, the African tried to take on onrushing Brenden Aaronson, who took the ball off his toes before tapping in from close range to give the Whites a well-deserved lead.
Things got worse for the Blues four minutes later as Rodrigo Moreno doubled the advantage for Leeds following an assist from Jack Harrison.
Angered by the awful mistake, fans stormed social media to lash out at the 30-year-old, while calling on Thomas Tuchel to hand Kepa a place in Chelsea’s starting XI.
Apart from Mendy’s foolishness, starting Gallagher was a bad idea. Lad is not ripe for the big stage yet.
