Kepa Arrizabalaga’s stance at Chelsea doesn’t look to be improving.
Although the Spaniard did keep a clean sheet in the comfortable victory over Morecambe on Sunday at Stamford Bridge, the away side were given confidence after what was almost an early blunder.
The 26-year-old, who was making his 100th appearance for the club he joined for a record fee back in 2018, almost carried a cross over his own line with the score still level.
Following the incident, as well as his poor recent form, the away substitutes and staff were given a boost.
According to the Telegraph, there were cries of ‘shoot’ from those on the Morecambe bench on the few occasions that their players got within 40 years of Kepa’s goal.
Frank Lampard said of his stopper earlier in the week: “Well at the moment he’s our player.
“I think the situation is clear, Edou’s (Edouard Mendy) come in, he’s been playing regularly as the number one for us.
“When Kepa came in for the Champions League game he did well, and he’s trained really well. His attitude around the place has been brilliant.
“So I won’t be drawn on that one at the moment, he’s our player, we’ll see how January goes.
“But I don’t want to be alluding to what might or might not be.”
