Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has been criticised for his performance in Chelsea’s 5-3 defeat at Liverpool on Wednesday night.

The goalkeeper was heavily criticised for his role in Trent Alexander-Arnold’s goal.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard refused to single out Kepa for criticism after his performance against Liverpool.

Speaking about Kepa after the game against Liverpool, Lampard said: “I wouldn’t talk about individuals in a game where we have conceded those goals. Some were real quality Liverpool finishes, particularly the free kick. There were some collective and individual errors for them but what we did do was contribute towards a really good game.

“At 4-3 it felt like we would get back into the game. I felt it throughout. At 3-0 it was difficult but even at 3-1 and what that gave us and the way we were playing in the game.

“We know where we’re at and we know if we make mistakes like that against a team of the quality of Liverpool, this is what can happen.

“But there were a lot of good things in the game so I certainly don’t want to get into an individual conversation about players.”
