Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga will start the Champions League game against Krasnodar at Stamford Bridge later today.

The Spaniard is the world’s most expensive goalkeeper following his transfer from Athletic Bilbao in 2018 but has failed to impress in a Chelsea shirt.

Kepa has been out of the picture at Stamford Bridge ever since Edouard Mendy’s arrival from Rennes over the summer transfer window.

Lampard said: “Kepa starts.

“He’s been very supportive of Edu and he’s training well, and that’s the main thing that I look at because training, particularly for goalkeepers because of how close they all are and the one-on-one nature of it, there cannot be a goalkeeper who doesn’t train at a level because they have to push each other and I see that with the group.

“I’m very pleased with that from Kepa, so his reaction has been spot on, absolutely spot on.”
