Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has been the focus of attention since the 2-0 defeat to Liverpool.

Pundits, fans and analysts have all been on his neck, since his huge error led to Sadio Mane’s second goal. The Chelsea goalkeeper gifted Mane with a wrong pass, and it had prompted different kinds of backlash targeted at him.

Kepa’s case comes after a turbulent second season with Chelsea last term, and the Blues are set to announce the signing of Edouard Mendy from Rennes, as his replacement.

Meanwhile, Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount, has said that he and his team-mates are all ‘behind’ the goalkeeper, although he admits that Kepa ‘knows’ he needs to improve.

“We know that Kepa is an experienced goalkeeper, he will look at it and he knows where he needs to look at it and improve but we are all going to be behind him,” Mount said.

“We all make mistakes, I make mistakes, I give the ball away but it’s just in their half and I can give the ball away and it’s different when it’s the back four.

“But as I said, we are all behind him, we all support him and it doesn’t matter because now we need to look towards the next game now.”
