The Blues wide variety one has come in for a lot of criticism this season and has been dropped through Frank Lampard on a couple of occasions, such as the closing day of the season when Chelsea wished to beat Wolves to be sure of Champions League football.
And it’s no marvel that Lampard didn’t trust the former Atletico Madrid keeper as he truely has the worst save proportion of any goalie who has performed 10 or more video games in Premier League history.
Chelsea conceded greater goals in the league this season than 10 groups and Brighton, who finished in 15th location conceded the identical amount as the fourth positioned side, with 54 dreams in opposition to them.
It was once the worst shielding report for the west London facet in over 20 years and according to different stats he has the second worst dreams to game file in a single season with the aid of a Chelsea keeper.
Whilst there has been questions about the defence in the front of him, the fact the world’s most pricey keeper failed to move for 14 of the 47 desires in opposition to him is stunning and he have to have conceded 11 less goals.
Despite the defensive frailties Lampard still took his crew into the top four and a place in the Champions League subsequent season, as nicely as achieving this weekend’s FA Cup final.
They have added Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech to the side for next season already and Kai Havertz also appears set to move to Stamford Bridge.
Having been linked with possible replacements for Kepa, Jamie Carragher thinks they have to sign any one to be their variety one if they’re to venture for the title subsequent season, telling Sky Sports, “I understand they hold shopping for a lot of attackers however you see how many dreams they have conceded. I assume a lot of that is down to the goalkeeper, if I am being completely honest.”
“It is an area that – if they desire to compete with Liverpool and Manchester City – they will have to rectify in the summer.”
