Graham Potter drops hint that Kepa Arrizabalaga is Chelsea’s new number one

Kepa Arrizabalaga looks to have taken over from Edouard Mendy as Chelsea’s number one...

Kepa Arrizabalaga’s turnaround at Chelsea over the last month has been pretty remarkable.

Following his extraordinary £72 million move from Atletico Bilbao back in 2018, the Spaniard has had a torrid time in west London.

However, since the arrival of Graham Potter, Kepa’s form has been very impressive and that was highlighted in the Blues’ 2-0 win over Aston Villa.

Potter: “It’s better to let football decide and Kepa’s done really well…”

The 28-year-old kept a clean sheet at Villa Park making several magnificent saves.

In the three appearances he has made in the league, he has kept two clean sheets and conceded just once.

He also kept back-to-back clean sheets against AC Milan in the Champions League.

The Chelsea boss said: “It’s better to let football decide and Kepa’s done really well…

“He’s been supported fantastically by Edou (Mendy) and Betts (Bettinelli), they provide good competition.

“But, Kepa’s form is really pleasing for everybody, especially him.

“It’s nice we’ve got competition in that area because you need that in the team.”
