Chelsea boss Frank Lampard made a big selection decision for Chelsea’s trip to Leicester, with the boss dropping Kepa Arrizabalaga following his series of errors this season.

According to Peter Crouch, Lampard sent a message to his first-team stars they could be dropped like goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Crouch also believes it was the right call to drop Arrizabalaga for the game against Leicester City.

“I think it’s a big, big decision but I think managers live and die by these decisions,” Crouch said on BT Sport.

“I think it’s a brave one but I think he hasn’t been up to it in recent weeks.

“You look at some of his mistakes, he’s not been commanding.

“Willy Caballero has obviously got a lot of experience and he’ll come in and step in.

“But you think about the people that have bought him, people upstairs, it was a lot of money, it’s a brave shout from Frank but I think it’s the right one.

“I think it shows to the whole team that if you’re not doing it, it doesn’t matter who you are, you’re going to be out the side.

“I think that’s going to keep the whole squad on their toes.

“That’s why I think it’s, although it’s a big call, I think it’s the right call for the side and it will keep everyone at it and on their toes.”
