Lampard warned against selling Kepa Arrizabalaga

Chelsea legend Gus Poyet has warned Chelsea boss Frank Lampard against selling Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

According to Poyet, the Chelsea defence is responsible for Kepa’s poor form as the goalkeeper has to make too many saves in a game.

“I think he’s good enough,” he said on Stadium Astro.

“When a goalkeeper needs to be in a situation of making saves constantly or in situations where five yards from you is a free header, it’s not about how good you are, it’s about the team.

“He needs a little bit of help as well.

“I wouldn’t be too worried about the goalkeeper.

“Having a goalkeeper so expensive that you’re going to have to bring someone in, it would be not necessary.

“Then do you want someone at the back? Depending on people leaving but everything starts on what you daily with the players and how you create a mentality that when you put a characteristic of a defender, whatever you put first it needs to be to defend.

“Then if he’s good on the ball, he’s good in the air or he can run but first he needs to defend and sometimes we forget about that.”

    Kepa is good enough for Chelsea. I know that he sometimes has bad days but no keeping glean sheet is the problem lying solemnly on the entire time especially the ffenx

  3. Kepa is a great goal keeper. U can check it from beginning chel bought him. He was performing well during Sari reign. The defenders was also good. Compare the defense of that time to date, there is a big margin. Now our defense is very poor and weak not Kepa. How can a goal keeper perform when the defense of the entire team is very weak.

  4. Kepa is a good goal keeper, Chelsea problem is defence, lampard should work on his defense

  5. Lampard doesnt have the Know How on how to coach the Defensive Phase of Chelsea…Conte was the best in the that…Bring an experience Defensive assistant in, a John Terry or Carragher

    Yes we need to look proper on the defense, our defence are too poor.

  7. Kepa is a weak keeper. Even if the defense is not that good, the keeper can still make saves. He needs to be sold.

    We don’t have defense is not that good lampard need to work on it

  11. Defence is not good …If you see the x1 vs shelf…james he wasn’t good…and then look at our forward. Abraham he failed so check on it…

  12. kepa is good.our defensive line is not good at all.if we sell kepa we will regret.lampard need to sign quality defenders

  13. Kepa is a very good keeper,we only need replacement for zouma,rudiger,and we need a creative midfielder I bet Chelsea will be a title contender ,zouma and rudiger are not footballers rather there suppose to play rubby🏈 or kick boxing.
