Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has insisted he will continue to support Kepa Arrizabalaga, after his latest mistake in Chelsea’s 3-3 draw with Southampton.
The Blues raced into a two-goal lead thanks to Timo Werner’s brace.
However, the Saints levelled following goals from Danny Ings and Che Adams.
Kai Havertz restored Chelsea’s lead almost immediately, but they conceded a late equalizer to drop points.
Kepa made several good saves but was at fault for Southampton’s second goal. Kurt Zouma under-hit his pass back to the keeper, who made a meal of his attempted tackle and allowed Adams to rifle home.
Chelsea has now shipped nine goals in five games this season.
“He made two really good saves in the match today, but of course people’s eyes will be drawn to the second goal and I understand that.
“But it wasn’t just Kepa who was involved in that goal. So that’s the unfortunate world of being a goalkeeper.
“And it’s clear that Mendy at the moment is injured and will probably be fit in the next week or two weeks, and then that will be the decision for me to make about who plays,” Lampard told his post-match press conference.
