Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has shed some light on his recent decision to drop keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Kepa has been forced to watch Willy Caballero man goal for Chelsea in their last two games against Leicester and Manchester United and according to Lampard his side’s record signing is in with every chance of regaining his starting status.
“I’m paid to make decisions. So with the form, I have to consider the goalkeeper position. Recently it’s just changed, but that’s nothing final.
“All Kepa needs to do is train and show a great attitude, as I demand from all the players. And things can obviously change. But all I want is the best for the team,” Lampard said in his Friday briefing.
Having begun to justify his hefty price-tag with a string of superb displays towards the end of the 2018/19 campaign but hasn’t been the case.
The 25-year-old has, particularly over the last couple of months, slipped into a major slump, which has seen him cost Chelsea a number of points.
As of last month, the former Athletic Bilbao man was the owner of the worst save percentage of any Premier League goalkeeper this season.
