To be fair when he first came in we were praying for someone who was simply competent. Fair to say that he's exceeded those expectations...

We will be reminded why we value competence when the ACoN roles around and our title challange goes in the toilet...

Right now I wouldnt swap him with any other GK in Europe, maybe Oblak but .. He's blocking out shots, commanding the area, and communicated well with defenders. Looking at stats, only goal he conceded was a PK, and only after a team mate  knocked the ball out of his grasp.

I think he is a very solid 7/10 goal keeper. I think with him apart from a miss kick every now and then you won’t see howlers. Maybe keepers like Ederson will make more spectacular saves but they also lose their heads every now and then. 
The only keeper I think better than him for my money would be Allison who has incredible short stopping and a better distribution- while Mendy is probably more commanding in the box.

I think he's a comfortable 8-9 out of 10. So assured when the ball is passed back to him, excellent positionally and as a shot stopper. Just doesn't seem prone to lapses in concentration like Ederson for example.

He really commands confidence.

Personally think it's the opposite. He makes saves look normal because his positioning has been spot on. 

Only reason spectacular saves look spectacular is because those keepers are out of position. Football being a dynamic game more often than not keepers rely on their reflexes and agility.

Mendy reads the game well and is most of the time on his toes and barely ever on his heels. 

He is a 8.5-9.5/10 goalkeeper if I'm honest.

His positioning is superb. He doesn't even make them super acrobatic saves like Kepa or De Gea, he's always at the critical spot and has the reflexes to pull out a hand. 

I cannot praise him enough
