Chelsea fans buzzing as Kepa is dropped for Willy Caballero at Leicester

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has lost his place in the team after a series of poor performances.

Frank Lampard has made the call to drop his No.1, who is still the club’s record signing at £72m.

The Spain international has cost Chelsea in recent games, especially failing to keep out Newcastle’s last-minute winner during January.

Bad games against Arsenal and Everton last month have also resulted in Lampard axing his first-choice shot-stopper.

As a result, experienced 38-year-old Willy Caballero has been drafted in to start away at Leicester today.
