Chelsea have some good free-kick takers in the squad as the likes of Willian, Marcos Alonso are the team’s major free kick takers, while Ross Barkley and Mason Mount are also good options.
Besides these aforementioned names, there could probably be some hidden talents in the team who could also be free-kick specialists and one of such talent is Kepa Arrizabalaga.
It’s not unusual for goalkeepers to take free-kicks as we’ve seen the likes of former Paraguay goalkeeper Jose Luis Chilavert, who peculiarly was a free-kick specialist.
Kepa scored a stunning free-kick in training that has got everyone raving as the Spanish goalkeeper pulled a stunning shot during training from way out.
Former Chelsea goalkeeper Rob Green had claimed Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is good enough to play in midfield.
He told the BBC: “He (Kepa) puts the ball down, right foot, left foot, and will ping a perfect pass into the path of the full back whose making a run down the wing.
“You go wow, he could play in centre midfield.”
