Kepa Arrizabalaga Sends Message To Edouard Mendy

Kepa Arrizabalaga is now back in action under new boss Thomas Tuchel, who started him in wins over Barnsley in the FA Cup and Newcastle in the Premier League.  

The £71m man kept clean sheets in both games and is back putting pressure on Chelsea No 1 Edouard Mendy.  

Speaking to Spanish radio station COPE, Kepa said: “Deep down I knew I could do it. Now I am not scared. I want to feel more important and I am working for it.  

“I haven’t let it get to me. Now I am feeling good after the inactivity. I have never thought about leaving Chelsea.”

A series of high-profile errors and a crisis of confidence led Frank Lampard to bring in a new No 1 this season, with Mendy now firmly installed in that position.
