Chelsea goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga has stated his stay at the Stamford Bridge so far has been a great one for him but only with the help of Manchester United Goalkeeper David de Gea.

Kepa joined the Blues at the summer for a record fee of £71.6 million from Athletic Bilbao and has since settled well, joining one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.

The new Chelsea recruit has made wonder saves this season which has helped the Stamford Bridge side from embarrassing defeats and he thinks he owes the United goalkeeper some gratitude.

He confessed that he has been getting advice and guidance about Chelsea and the Premier League from the United number 1 keeper during international breaks.

The 24-year-old goalkeeper noted that the time spent with former Athletico Madrid goalkeeper at the World Cup has made a lot of impacts because he has learnt a lot which includes the difference between the English and the Spanish football.

Kepa expressed delight for being in Chelsea, adding that his move to England is not one to regret because he feels great at the moment about it.

The Spanish goalkeeper has walked into the starting XI of the Blues team under Maurizio Sarri.
