Kepa Arrizabalaga Might Cost Chelsea a Fourth-place Finish This Summer

Chelsea might fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League competition for the third time in four seasons, that’s according to former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher

According to the Liverpool legend, the Blues might not make a top-four finish this season due to the age of their goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The 23-year-old goalie joined the Blues from Athletic Bilbao for £71m during the summer window but Carragher — who is now a pundit — believes the West London club might regret spending a huge price on such young goalkeeper.

He said Kepa is a very young goalkeeper who might not cope with the physical-demanding nature of the League on the long run.

He said playing twice in a week ( Sunday and Thursday) might be too challenging for the young goalkeeper.

“But you think of them playing Thursday-Sunday and the goalkeeper is still young.” he admitted

He also speaks on Chelsea’s decision to let go of Thibaut Courtois, who joined Real Madrid for just £32m.

According to him, the Blues have lost one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

“He may go on to be one of the world’s best, but it’s not Courtois. They have lost one of the world’s best,” he said.

While speaking on Monday Night Football on Sky Sports, Carragher admits that Kepa is a great goalie who has great potentials to become one of the best goalies in the world but that might take much time
