Chelsea chief Cech: Kepa has been brilliant

Chelsea chief Petr Cech has sung the praises of goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Cech has praised Kepa for his form since replacing Edouard Mendy in the Chelsea team. The Spaniard, who has largely lost his starting berth since the Senegal international joined the club in the summer of 2020, has been reinstated while Mendy is away at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Cech said, “I must touch on Kepa, too. He had to fill those big boots while Edou has been away, and he has been brilliant in all those games under even more scrutiny than usual.

“You need a strong team and every person ready to help. The goalkeeping group work so hard together to make sure they are all ready for when the moment comes, so Kepa deserves credit too."
