Chelsea fans have taken to their social media pages to criticise Mendy's display, who joined the side from Rennes in August 2019, insisting he should have saved Ronaldo’s effort.

Below is how fans reacted on Twitter to Mendy’s performance against Man United.

Another set of fans suggested that Mendy does not deserve to play for Chelsea anymore and should be released in the next transfer window.

Meanwhile, a group of supporters have defended the 30-year-old custodian, insisting he was the best performer for Chelsea alongside midfielder N’Golo Kante, while another fan feels he should not take the blame for Ronaldo's effort.

Elsewhere, another supporter weighed in on the matter, insisting Mendy was to blame for the goal because he did not cover his space well to deny Ronaldo the chance to hit the ball.
