Kepa Arrizabalaga finds himself in more trouble as Willy Caballero is set to replace the Spaniard in goal for Hull City clash.
However, the Argentine keeper could replace Kepa if he impresses, Lampard said.
“All the players that play do,” Lampard said at the pre-match presser. “All the ones who don’t start regularly. Those are the rules.”
Lampard added: “That’s where the goalkeeper I suppose is a specific position.
“Where it’s quite well known there’s a number one and a number two. But my choice is to make that choice after the game considering the next game.”
The Basque keeper has been criticised by a significant part of fans and pundits after his displays in the games against Newcastle and Arsenal. He was blamed for mistakes that led to Chelsea dropping points in both matches (although some experts question these judgments).
Blasted by fans and pundits, Kepa is clearly failing to live up to the price paid by the Blues. Perhaps a bit of rest will help?
