Lampard discusses Kepa’s Chelsea future after goalkeeper was benched against Wolves

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard dropped Kepa Arrizabalaga for the game against Wolves, preferring Willy Caballero in goal.

Lampard revealed after the victory over Wolves that he will assess Chelsea’s goalkeeping situation once our season is fully completed.

“The idea that we haven’t kept enough clean sheets is definitely not just a reflection of our goalkeeper,” said Lampard.

“That’s something that we have to work on as a team, look at how we train, maybe how we recruit generally going forward.

“But I don’t want to pinpoint it on Kepa today.

“That was a decision today probably on recent form, recent situations for him, he’s had a tough time.

“And I felt Willy coming in off the back of a good performance against Manchester United last week would be what we needed today.

“So I don’t want to jump forward beyond the Arsenal game next week. It would be wrong.

“The squad is really strong as we are and I want it to stay that way for one more week domestically and then going to Bayern Munich. Looking forward to next season will happen after that.”
