The Senegal international produced a stunning performance between the sticks on Wednesday as the Blues progressed into the final

Football fans are buzzing on social media due to Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy's saves against Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final encounter. 

The Senegalese produced stunning displays to stop Zinedine Zidane's men from finding the back of the net on Wednesday as the Blues secured a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge.

Earlier in the encounter, Mendy stopped Luka Modric from opening the scoring. Then he produced an eye-catching leap to parry Karim Benzema's header. 

Timo Werner's 28th-minute goal put Chelsea ahead while Mason Mount doubled the lead as they progressed into the final with a 3-1 aggregate win but fans were most pleased by Mendy's display.
