“He Is Our Keeper” – Lampard Shower Praises On Kepa After Brighton WIN
Chelsea open their Premier League campaign with a 3-1win against Brighton and Lampard was satisfied with Kepa Arrizabalaga performance, MySportDab reports.
Frank Lampard was pleased with the Blues number one goalkeeper who made a couple of good saves.
Kepa Arrizabalaga only conceded one goal which was fairly his fault nor Chelsea’s defense.
Although it was same manner which saw him concede from an outside strike for the 19th time.
Aside from that he made good saves which helped them with the 3-1 victory at the Amex last night.
Frank Lampard has backed the 25 year old Spaniard saying:
“I am happy with Kepa, I saw confidence in him,” he told Sky Sports.
“He is here, he is our ‘keeper and I am happy with him.”
Shortly after Trossard made it 1-1, Reece James restored his side’s lead when he blasted into the top corner from long range.
“Reece James’ goal, it had me off my seat and we needed it, we weren’t at our best in that period.
“Reece has got that in him, he is a player of such quality.
You try and get him in areas where he can be a threat.”
He added saying: “I thought we were OK. I liked the work ethic.
If you analyse the fact that we’ve been together as a team for four days, to expect everything to click on day one is difficult.
We showed determination and that is a game we might have dropped points in last year.”
Chelsea next game will be against Liverpool at home in their second game of the new 2020/2021 season.
