A handful of Chelsea fans are eager for the club to keep the faith in Kepa Arrizabalaga despite a troubling second season for the Spanish international.
The 25-year-old goalkeeper has come under fire this season from Chelsea supporters for a number of errors and poor performances from the Blues, with One Football reporting that Kepa is statistically one of the worst goalkeepers in Europe this campaign. The former Athletic Bilbao academy graduate has the worst save percentage from shots faced from inside the box in the Premier League at 51%.
Kepa’s form this season has earned him deserved criticism, and now according to The Mirror, Frank Lampard is set to clash with the Chelsea board as the Blues boss aims to offload the world’s most expensive goalkeeper (per BBC Sport). The English manager dropped the club number one for Willy Caballero on Saturday against Leicester City (per BBC Sport).
Yet despite dropping out of favour with Lampard, some Chelsea supporters on social media are keen on Kepa remaining at the club to “prove himself” and learn from mistakes given his young age in goalkeeping terms.
Here’s what Chelsea fans had to say about keeping Kepa on Twitter…
Give him one more season to prove himself..#keep

Keep kepa, he is obviously a very decent keeper. Frank is handling this well, take him out for a few games and work on his weaknesses.
