Chelsea legend Pat Nevin is impressed with Kepa Arrizabalaga’s form despite his lack of clean sheets this season.

Arrizabalaga has conceded 13 goals in just six Premier League games.

“Happily, one player in that backline who hasn’t missed much football in his time here is Kepa and once again at the weekend he was in fine shot-stopping form,” Nevin told Chelsea’s Official website.

“Some of his saves against Liverpool were world-class.

“Even though we have shipped 13 league goals already this season in the league, few have been even partially attributable to the goalie.

“He will not enjoy losing that number of goals but although those bald statistics suggest he is the third-worst keeper in the league right now, I think he is on as good form as any other number one in England.”
