Chelsea didn’t keep a clean sheet in their last League game against Manchester United that ended in a 1-1 draw but it could have been worse than that for the West London club if Kepa Arrizabalaga didn’t step up.
The Spanish National was among the Players that were tipped to leave Stamford Bridge last summer but the Blues didn’t receive any offer for him. Kepa Arrizabalaga has been a Backup Goalkeeper at Chelsea in the last two seasons despite being the world’s most expensive Goalkeeper.
The Spanish National helped the Blues to win the Europa League in his first season at the club but the following season was a lowest low for the Spanish.
Kepa Arrizabalaga was horrible in Chelsea’s goal. He was sloppy, full of errors and his confidence dipped too. He costs Chelsea a lot of Premier League points during Frank Lampard’s first season as Chelsea Boss and the West London club had to sign Edouard Mendy to replace him.
After two seasons on Chelsea bench, Kepa Arrizabalaga has written his redemption story, and what a great story it is. The Former Atletico Bilbao Goalkeeper has been quite brilliant this season for Chelsea. He has kept 5 back-to-back clean sheets this season.
He has went more than 10 hours of football this season without conceding any goal until Casemiro Scored against him last weekend.
