Willy Caballero was preferred in goal to Kepa Arrizabalaga for Chelsea’s visit to the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

It was Caballero’s first Premier League appearance of the season, but the Argentine conceded two goals away at Leicester City, and will take the blame for the Foxes second goal.

Rudiger who scored twice against Leicester City has spoken about the two goalkeepers but refused to pick a favourite out of the two.

“For me I have with both goalkeepers a good relationship,” said Rudiger.

“This is the decision of the coach and we respect that. I have to give Willy as much confidence as I give to Kepa always and I think he did a great job.”

Explaining why he dropped Arrizabalaga for the game against Leicester City, Chelsea manager Lampard said: “It’s a decision that I make and I think with goalkeepers it’s a decision you don’t take lightly because of what it means.”

    As a fanatic and fervent fan of Chelsea FC, I prefer caballero than Kepa in all our upcoming games. Kepa is somehow careless to handle certain goals against us. Inside the pitch, I think Odoi needs to improve his passes and collection skills and also needs to be consistent. Rudiger is a star.

      I think Lampard’s decision will help Kepa too.I think it has happened to other goalkeepers during their first Season at Chelsea.It will benefit Him a lot.Though He is a wonderful sensation.

    As a fan of CHELSEA, I prefer Caballero to Kepa in the goal.
    Caballero should be given more chance to showcase his potential, kepa has conceded a lot more goals as a keeper.

  3. Caballero is better. Kepa doesn’t show much experience. I think Caballero should be given more chance to prove his worthy. This is also a way of giving Kepa competition thus improving him.

  4. I prefer kepa to caballero

  5. I prefer Caballero the in all aspect coz keeps didn’t prove is big money landed he keep didn’t serious when is at post also he is a bit arrogant before Warri left against man city

  6. Both two are good as Kepa first, and Caba second

  7. Kepa is always determined I think those who knows what it mean to be a goalkeeper can agree with me but also caballero z good so both can given chances
