Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been urged to sell Kepa Arrizabalaga after his performance in Chelsea’s 5-3 defeat at Liverpool on Wednesday night.

This is according to Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher.

Carragher told Sky Sports: “Chelsea won’t go no further unless they change their goalkeeper. Going back to how important goalkeepers are I look at this Chelsea team and there’s a lot I like about it, it does remind me in a lot of ways the position Jurgen Klopp was in a couple of years ago.

“He’s done as much as he can, yes Frank’s still in his early stages but those big signings can completely transform you as a team.

“I still think Chelsea need a defender, you see how many goals they’ve conceded. I think a lot of that is down to the goalkeeper being totally honest.

“You see a lot of centre halves at Chelsea without seeing one really outstanding one, those are the areas that if they are going to challenge Liverpool and Man City they’ll have to rectify in the summer.

“They are the worst team in the league defending corners. This is a massive problem for Chelsea. Yes Werner is coming in and the lad from Ajax, there is talk of Havertz as well. It sounds great and it gets supporters excited but it means nothing if you don’t sort out that back three and certainly that goalkeeper.”

    The final score did not by any means discourage me, but that of Kepa’s performance. How can a 72m priced shootstopper performance as though he knows nothing about free kicks? Balls from the almost the middle of the pitch landing at the back of his nets. Absolutely Blues won’t go anywhere next season with Kepa in the poles.

    If Lampard does not sell Kepa at the end of season he will lose his job as coach at the end of next season

  3. It’s true we love lampard but he has to consider some of the good ideas people give especially for that of jamie carragher,he spoke about a central defence number 5 and 4+the the keeper

    Lampard have to change kepa, Kepa’s performance can give person heart attack if Chelsea want to compete with Liverpool and Man City next season Kepa need to be changed

  5. James Frank Lampard have to do including himself because he never have best eleven through out the season

  6. And also Frank Lampard should not rely on Mount than Pulisic. Mount should on sub. while Pulisic should be starting the game with Girund
