Kepa’s saves on the Spain training ground 

Chelsea fans went wild when they saw the performance of goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga in the match against Al-Hilal. The Spaniard made a great contribution to the home team’s 1-0 final victory, thereby helping the Blues win tickets to the FIFA Club World Cup final.

Kepa had two amazing saves early in the second half, helping to preserve Chelsea’s lead. Many fans question whether Edouard Mendy is strong enough to take a main catch from Kepa at this time.

A series of praises for Kepa appeared on the social network Twitter. “Kepa has been training hard overtime. He will not lose a starting spot when the image of the number 1 goalkeeper is back, ” account @OopsMpho shared.

Kepa played brilliantly. 

If it weren’t for Kepa’s magic, Chelsea would have been ahead,” commented one fan. Kepa has risen to another level since Mendy joined the club, ” account @BeardedBlue20 shared.

Kepa’s performance this season is really sublime. The former Athletic Bilbao star always knows how to shine when given the opportunity. In the fourth round of the FA Cup, Kepa excellently saved the penalty in the second extra time, thereby helping Chelsea continue with the final score 2-1.

Step back in time, Kepa turned into a hero in a 2-0 victory over Brentford in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup. The Spaniard successfully saved all 3 of Brentford’s shots on target in the first half.
