Lampard explains decision to start Willy Caballero over Kepa Arrizabalaga against Arsenal

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard opted to start Willy Caballero ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga for Chelsea’s FA Cup final clash against Arsenal.

Explaining his decision to start Caballero, Lampard told BT Sport: “To be honest that was my plan anyway was for him to play the FA Cup throughout pretty much.

“And he plays, he got a clean sheet last week and we rely on him and we trust in him.”

Kepa has struggled under Lampard this season and was dropped for the 2-0 victory over Wolves on the final day of the Premier League season.
