Chelsea defender Sarr: Great knowing Mendy behind you

Chelsea defender Malang Sarr hopes to see more action in the Carabao Cup against Southampton.

Sarr featured in the previous round against Aston Villa.

"At the moment we are doing really well as a team and as soon as the coach put me in the squad and trusts me, I try to give it back, perform well and help the team to achieve our goal," Sarr told the club's website.

"The way Brentford play was more direct than Aston Villa. They were playing straight to try to find the striker, and they put the ball in the air and then fight for the second and third ball, but Aston Villa was a bit different.

"They were trying to find the solution by passing the ball and moving around and it is quite good for us to have different situations, so we can adapt ourselves and find solutions to defend well."

Sarr also highlighted the performance of Edouard Mendy. Sarr has known the goalie for a long time from their days together in France.

"I am not surprised about what is happening right now with Edou because he is a great player and he is working really hard every day so he gets what he deserves. You see that with the results on the pitch.

"He is loud behind the defenders and he can show that he is not happy. He is trying to help and guide you as much as he can and it is really good to feel that support behind you, feel that you have a goalkeeper who is ready for you."
