Top Three Replacements For Kepa Arrizabalaga Revealed

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga could leave the club this summer after manager Frank Lampard dropped him from his starting XI.

The Spanish international has sat on the bench in the last two games in the Premier League after some questionable performances in the Chelsea goal.

Kepa Arrizabalaga has one of the worst save ratio in the Premier League this season and that prompted Lampard to drop him for the away game at Leicester City in the league.

The Spaniard was replaced in the Chelsea starting XI by 38-year-old ex-Argentine international shot stopper Willy Caballero for the Leicester City game which ended in a 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium.

Willy Caballero was then retained for the next league game at home to top-four rivals Manchester United on Monday night. He was unable to influence the result which was in favour of the visitors.

Manchester United completed the double over Chelsea for the first time in the Premier League era after the 2-0 away win at Stamford Bridge via the goals from Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire either side of the halftime interval.

The Red Devils had thrashed Chelsea 4-0 at home in the reverse fixture on the opening weekend of the season.

Kepa Arrizabalaga is the most expensive goalkeeper in world football after Chelsea paid £71m to sign him from Athletic Bilbao. Here are four goalkeepers that could replace him:

1. Nick Pope

The Burnley goalkeeper is one of the best shot stoppers in the Premier League this season and he has emerged as a strong contender to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga as the Chelsea number one.

2. Dean Henderson

Manchester United loanee Dean Henderson has been in good form since his loan move to Sheffield United from the Red Devils. French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG), Sheffield United and many more are interested in a permanent deal for him.

3. Bartlomiej Dragowski

Fiorentina goalkeeper  Bartlomiej Dragowski is a major target for Chelsea.
