Chelsea host Tottenham in their next game in a pivotal Premier League fixture – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have claimed they want goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga recalled.

Frank Lampard’s side were on the wrong end of some VAR decisions, but ultimately there were poor defensive errors once again and a lack of cutting edge going forward.

It means that fourth-placed Chelsea are now only one point above fifth-placed Spurs ahead of the meeting between the London rivals.

Meanwhile, there is also Sheffield United and Manchester United within touching distance too in pursuit of a Champions League position.

Lampard knows his team will be out of the top four if they lose their next game and it’s coming to a major part in the season.

A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media are adamant that Kepa needs to be recalled against Spurs.

Kepa has been dropped to the bench for the last two league fixtures due to his form this campaign and had time to reflect.

The 25-year-old Spaniard has been a real weak link when he’s played this year and seen his previous standards dip.

He is the world’s most expensive goalkeeper ever after losing £71million (BBC) from Athletic Bilbao in 2018 and enjoyed a decent debut season last year.

But his confidence is shot to bits right now after countless individual errors this campaign and that saw Lampard eventually drop him.

38-year-old veteran Willy Caballero has been in net for the last two league matches and hasn’t set the world alight, which is why some don’t want to see Kepa sidelined for any longer.


Here are some Blues fans demanding Kepa is recalled:
