Lampard makes Kepa admission after Liverpool error

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga was at fault for Liverpool’s second goal in the 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge.

Kepa’s error against Liverpool is the latest in a long line of errors from the Spanish goalkeeper which has seen Chelsea move to sign Edouard Mendy.

Following Kepa’s latest error in the defeat to Liverpool on Sunday, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard hinted he will stick by Kepa despite the expected arrival of Mendy.

When asked what he can do to help Kepa, Lampard told Sky Sports: “To try and give him confidence because a goalkeeper absolutely relies on confidence.

“It’s a clear mistake, Kepa’s accepted that as he should do.

“He holds his hands up and we have to be a group and accept that sort of joint responsibility.

“These things do happen, but it’s obviously a clear mistake.”

He added: “How do you gauge confidence?

“There are lots of things in football, one is confidence, the other is work – there are too many circumstances.

“It was just a clear mistake today.”
