Chelsea fans unconvinced by Kepa Arrizabalaga's recent form

Despite a stunning penalty save in the crucial 2-2 draw with Valencia, some Chelsea fans on Twitter remain unconvinced by Kepa Arrizabalaga’s recent performances.

Spanish goalkeeper Kepa had a mixed evening and it could be argued that he was at fault for both goals. The first, from Carlos Soler, squirmed under his hand, and the second glided over his head as he pulled his hands out of the way.

However, on the 64th minute, Kepa was the hero as he pulled off a wonderful save from a Daniel Parejo penalty. Had the penalty gone in, it could have been a serious turning point in the game, and Chelsea may not have earned a draw.

When he signed for the Blues in a deal worth around £71 million in August 2018 from Athletic Bilbao, Kepa become the club’s record signing and the most expensive goalkeeper of all time.

His first season in Chelsea blue went well, as the club finished 3rd and won the Europa League. The penalty heroics against Eintracht Frankfurt in the semi-finals of the competition were a particular highlight.

Despite the infamous Carabao Cup final shootout debacle, where it appeared Kepa refused to be substituted late in the game, the consensus on the young Spaniard was positive.

Blues fans will have been hoping for more from the 25-year-old this season, but some poor distribution and problems with shot-stopping have led to questions being asked.
