Chelsea interim manager Frank Lampard is weighing up the possibility of starting Edouard Mendy instead of Kepa against Brighton, according to GOAL.

Lampard is unimpressed with performance of Mendy against Real Madrid on Wednesday and wants to start Mendy against Brighton so the Senegal international will be ready for the game against Real Madrid next week.

Lampard preferred Mendy to Kepa during his first stint as Chelsea boss and could once again opt to start the out-of-favour goalkeeper on Saturday.
