Chelsea manager Frank Lampard refuses to drop goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga after his blunder in the lost top match against Liverpool. Partly due to the mistake of the troubled Spaniard, ‘The Reds’ won 0-2 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Kepa wanted to play captain Jorginho in the penalty area at the beginning of the second half, but had not counted on the onrushing Sadio Mané. The Liverpool attacker intercepted the ball and shot his team into a 0-2 lead four minutes after the opening goal.

“Obviously that mistake hurt us, but Kepa needs support from the people around him right now,” Lampard said after the game. BBC. “That applies to all players. It is important that we give him the necessary confidence again.”

It was not the first time that Kepa blundered at Chelsea. Last week at the season opener against Brighton & Hove Albion, the former Athletic de Bilbao player was responsible for the 1-1 with an error, although ‘The Blues’ eventually won that game with 1-3.

Still, Lampard continues to stick to Kepa, who can still call himself the most expensive goalkeeper in the world with a transfer fee of approximately 80 million euros. “Nobody tries to make mistakes in football, this is part of the game. Kepa just has to keep working hard.”

Despite Lampard’s soothing words, Chelsea will strengthen itself this week with goalkeeper Edouard Mendy from Stade Rennes, according to British media. With Willy Caballero, Chelsea has another goalkeeper in the selection. The 38-year-old Argentinian comes into action on Wednesday when the Londoners play against Barnsley in the League Cup tournament.
