Lampard urged to start Kepa in Manchester United's visit

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has been urged to start Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal when they host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Monday.

Kepa has been missing in action with Lampard giving Willy Caballero the nod; a move that has left question marks over the Spaniard's future at Stamford Bridge.

According to former goalkeeper Mark Bosnich- who played for Chelsea from 2001-02 -bringing Kepa back in from the start against United will bring the best out of him.

"Personally I would bring him back in, especially if Lampard is pleased with his reaction. It's happened to all of us in terms of getting left out of the squad and the most important thing during those training sessions and if you have to play in a reserve game is that your attitude is 100 percent, because everyone is watching you and how you react.

"He's had a rough time and that happens to the best players and to the best goalkeepers but I really do feel he is the answer in the long term.

"I know a lot of people have disagreed with that, I've seen that recently especially on social media, but people have to understand that players in all types of sport go through bad times and it's the way that you react from those bad times which separates you.

"It is a big game, but I think there's no better way than putting somebody like him back in and I think it will bring the best out of him," Bosnich said to Sky Sports.

Fourth-placed Chelsea leads United by six points ahead of a pivotal game in both clubs' pursuit of Champions League qualification.
