Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has started the last three matches for Spain in the Euro 2020 qualifiers after a dip in form by long-time incumbent David De Gea. 

The Manchester United goalkeeper has flopped a couple of times in goal and it seems like he has lost his number one shirt. 

However, Spain boss Robert Moreno insists he does not have a favourite for the position at this time with competition between Kepa, De Gea and Lopez. 

“My goalkeepers are De Gea, Kepa and Pau Lopez,” said the former Barcelona assistant manager to Spanish radio station Cadena SER.

“I like that there is competition. Kepa is not ahead of De Gea, and neither is ahead of Pau.

“I want to get to the Euros with three goalkeepers who are ready to compete. They are all playing at a high level and there are nuances and differences between them. All three have good footwork.

“At Barca, we won the treble alternating goalkeepers.”
