Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been warned the club will miss out on a top four finish if he fails to drop Willy Caballero from the starting XI.

This is according to former West Ham and Newcastle goalkeeper Shaka Hislop.

Caballero made his first Premier League start of the season in Chelsea’s 2-2 draw at Leicester City on Saturday.

Before the game against Leicester City, Kepa Arrizabalaga had played every minute for Chelsea in the Premier League.

Hislop believes Lampard was wrong to drop Arrizabalaga from the starting XI despite his series of errors in goal for Chelsea.

“Listen, I don’t know what kind of discussion Frank Lampard had with Kepa about the situation, about his own performances,” Hislop told ESPN FC.

“But from the outside looking in, I’m not sure how this makes him better.

“I’m not sure how this improves him as a goalkeeper, being left out in a game of this magnitude, with the spotlight quite clearly on you.

“Now that’s something that Frank Lampard is going to have to manage because I don’t see how you finish the season with Willy Caballero in goal and still finish top four.

“Here’s the thing, you have a fragile, what maybe a fragile dressing room given some of the inconsistencies seen from them over the last month-and-a-half, but now you’re complaining about the transfer window where you haven’t strengthened the squad and you fire broadside at your goalkeeper.

“How does that play out in the dressing room between now and the end of the season, when these are the players that you are going to have to rely on?”

  1. We should blame the board for this coz Lampard was crying day & night that they should buy the striker; either Timo Werner, Piateck or Dembelr but none of them was bought despite having 150m pounds in the pocket.We were offered the cheapest player (Piateck) but they ignored him therefore don’t blame Lampard for their failiour.

    I want lampard to drop keeper forever because this guy have fucked with us so many times OK. I hate him, always ruin our efforts. Emeribe Joseph Nigeria port harcourt.

  3. Bring in a competent goal keeper trainer to work on Kepa and Willy. Kepa has his flaws and needs sharpening. Both keepers need to be trained on hw to control their defense and take charge.

    Lampard should be blame coz he always keep choosing Abraham instead of batshuayi he supposed to give batsuayi a chance, I’m sure batshuayi can do better than Abraham
