Chelsea are drawing 0-0 with Barnsley, and they aren’t having things their own way. The home team should be in front, and Chelsea have Kepa to thank for the fact that there’s not an upset on the cards.
The Spanish keeper is making his first start under Thomas Tuchel, and within minutes he was able to show his impressive reactions, stopping what looked a certain goal with his knee.
He’ll have to do a lot to unseat Edouard Mendy, but this is the best way to make a good impression on a new manager Tuchel.
