Willy Caballero started against Leicester in the 2-2 draw at the King Power last month and the 38-year-old retained his place for the visit of Manchester United to Stamford Bridge on Monday.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard explained why he chose Caballero over £72 million Kepa Arrizabalaga for the game against Manchester United.

“It’s not an easy decision but I have to go on form as I do with every player in the squad,” Lampard said.

“I go on what I see on the training ground, what I see off the pitch and mainly performance of course as well. I’ve just gone with that. I went with Willy before but it doesn’t mean anything long-term.

“It just means we have to be competitive here, people have to show. I think Willy has been a fantastic professional he’s trained really well.

“He came in against Leicester and made a couple of really good saves in the game. We know the spotlight is on goalkeepers more than any other position and it’s just a decision and we look to move on.”

  1. Frank Lampard is making a very big mistake by drooping Kepa Arrizabalaga with in a big match against Manchester united I was not happy when I see the formation because I know that Caballero will not be good for the match Lampard please we need Kepa Arrizabalaga back in stating 11

  2. Lampard u are not well equipped for this job just forget been a Chelsea legend u still need to be sited out for a while and then come back some years in the future

  3. Indeed the coach disappointed us…. He should have a consistent first 11 squad.

    Love to see us try back 3 with dave Rodger and timori

  5. By dropping kepa it means thatou are not ready for the job, forget about being once time a legend here and go your way back to Derby and train again.

  6. We need a consistent first 11, lampard should have consider this or else let him leave the job, and come back in the future.
