“He’s been training excellently” – Frank Lampard defends heavily criticised player » Chelsea News

Chelsea breezed past Luton Town in the FA Cup last night, moving into the 5th round of the competition.

Things were not always as easy as the score line suggests though, and Chelsea conceded a silly goal to let the Championship side back in the game making it 2-1.

Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga had a rare chance to start the game yesterday, and he will certainly be feeling that he should have done more to keep that goal out. However, others could have done better to stop it as well, Kurt Zouma could have made a block, and they were afforded far too much time and space in the build up.

Kepa then went on to make a fine save in the second half to redeem himself and stop the score line going to 2-2, which was a great response from the under fire stopper.

Lampard has spoken out to praise the Spanish international, as reported by WAGNH.

“Kepa makes a really top save in the second half to make sure it doesn’t go to 2-2. It’s very easy for people to focus on that but Kepa hasn’t been playing regularly.

“Today he’s come in – he’s been training excellently and is a good goalkeeper – and we can give him that one. I’m as annoyed with the fact we let someone stand in our box with that space and get a shot away. It was a general team moment of complacency given how comfortable we were at 2-0, which isn’t good enough.”
