Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has been blamed for Chelsea’s defeat to Newcastle United and the 2-2 draw against Arsenal.
Arrizabalaga conceded late goals against Newcastle United and Arsenal.
McGrath believes dropping Arrizabalaga was good man-management by Chelsea boss Frank Lampard and believes Kepa will be stronger for it.
McGrath told Sky Sports: “Kepa was just slow on to the Newcastle goal and the Hector Bellerin one against Arsenal. I didn’t think it was terminal. I didn’t think that he was a bad goalkeeper.
“I thought it was to do with sharpness, which can be improved upon.
“Do I think he is the world’s best goalkeeper because he’s the world’s most expensive goalkeeper? No, I don’t think so.
“At Old Trafford on Saturday, Peter Schmeichel came into the press room and you just felt presence there. He’s even got a presence in a room long since he hung his gloves up.
“A presence in and around the box comes with time. De Gea didn’t have it at the start of his Old Trafford career because it comes with time.
“I don’t think its terminal for him but it’s good man-management. He’ll be stronger for it.”
