Keown unimpressed by Chelsea's Kepa: Patricio the better keeper

Arsenal hero Martin Keown has dismissed the quality of Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Keown believes Wolves keeper Rui Patricio is the better player.

“The main reason Wolves earned their point against Manchester City was Rui Patricio," he told the Daily Mail.

“He pulled off two world class saves and when you can bring in a player of that quality, you get results you could only have dreamed of.

“It is remarkable that Wolves could sign Rui Patricio on a free.

“I would argue he is a better goalkeeper than Kepa Arrizabalaga, who cost Chelsea a world-record £71.6m.

“In an age when full backs and goalkeepers cost more than centre forwards, Wolves pulled off an amazing piece of business."
