Chelsea beat Watford on Sunday to secure a return to the Champions League next season – and some of the club’s supporters were blown away by the performance of their goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.
The Blues are now guaranteed a top four finish in the Premier League after a 3-0 victory over Watford at Stamford Bridge on the penultimate day of the league season.
Maurizio Sarri’s side moved up to third in the table ahead of Tottenham and will battle for the positions on the final day of the campaign.
After failing to hit top gear in the first-half, Chelsea produced an eye-catching display in the second period to earn three points.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek and David Luiz both got on the scoresheet with headers, while Gonzalo Higuain also netted a chipped goal in the second-half.
Chelsea did have to withstand a dangerous Watford team at times and goalkeeper Kepa impressed in net.
The shot-stopper made a top-class save to deny a Troy Deeney header that looked destined for the goal and command his area.
He has made a great impact in West London since his arrival last summer and is a 24-year-old that keeps getting better.
The Spaniard has 22 clean sheets in 51 games across all competitions this season to highlight his importance.
Here are some Chelsea fans raving about Kepa:
Really good save today! First season in England is never easy for anyone especially for a GK, you are very young and have such a bright future ahead 💙

I was skeptical when we signed him, his height being the main reason, but for the most part he’s been lights out. Imagine what he’ll be capable of if he gets a back line that protects him.
