Chelsea second goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga started the game today because Mendy was injured and he had a great game.

Note worthy stats.

  • Kepa Arrizabalaga has now kept six clean sheets in nine matches for Thomas Tuchel. In that time, he’s lifted the Champions League and won the Super Cup for Chelsea.
  • Kepa Arrizabalaga Revuelta’s incredible mentality is phenomenal. Went from losing his girlfriend and being ridiculed by the entire football community to being the HERO in 3(!) penalty shootouts. 2 of them in Europe. Insane.
