Chelsea boss Frank Lampard dropped Kepa Arrizabalaga for the game against Leicester City on Saturday, with the boss opting to start Willy Caballero.

According to former Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood, Lampard has put himself under pressure after dropping Arrizabalaga for the game against Leicester City.

Sherwood also believes Lampard made the correct decision by dropping Kepa.

“The pressure’s more on Frank Lampard because the hierarchy are looking and saying ‘Oh okay, the most expensive goalkeeper in the world and you’re going to decide to drop him’,” Sherwood told Sky Sports.

“I think he made the correct decision, I am not having Kepa the first time he told Sarri last year at Wembley he’s not coming off when he put his number up. I cannot have the kid’s attitude. Most responsible position on the pitch and it’s what he breeds to the rest of them around.

“Now, I think Frank would have spoken to Rudiger, spoken to a couple of other guys and they might have said to him ‘Caballero, because at the moment we can’t trust this boy behind us, Kepa’.

“So I think he’s got more responsibility in Caballero at the moment and that is why he decided to play him. There’s no point bringing him out of the team now, give him a run of games. I don’t think he will let you down.”
