In a rather unexpected turn of events given their league positions, Chelsea managed to seal a 2-0 victory over Liverpool, eliminating Jurgen Klopp’s troop from the FA Cup and crushing their dreams of a possible treble.
Obviously, Klopp did select the likes of Neco Williams and Curtis Jones so it’s hard to argue the visitors were at full strength but a win is a win and The Athletic’s Liam Twomey was very quick to shower Kepa Arrizabalga with lots of praise on his social media account, tweeting about the goalie following this huge result.
Kepa played with a real edge and a focus tonight to earn that clean sheet. An encouraging response after the biggest test of character of his career so far #CFC

Twomey also emphasised how this clash against Liverpool was also the biggest test of his character so far throughout his whole career and seeing him respond so well is surely going to put a smile on Lampard’s face. Considering he’d been dropped in recent games, the fact the Spanish international was able to make 5 saves (via SofaScore) and his aerial duel against a side as dominant as Liverpool have been over the season is impressive.
