English Premier League outfit Chelsea suffered a 3-2 defeat against West Ham in their North London derby and manager Frank Lampard is not taking it likely.

The defeat has now mounted pressure on the Blues who are on the verge of losing their Champions League spot to Man United.

Following the defeat, Chelsea are now placed in 4th position with just two points edge of Man United.

Frank Lampard has now been forced to make certain transfer decisions, one of which is to loan out goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Reports claim that Frank Lampard is unhappy with the inconsistency of the shot-stopper and would be sending him out on loan.

The Sun reports that Spanish La Liga outfit Sevilla are keen to have Kepa on loan while Chelsea will continue to pay part of his £150,000 wage.

Howbeit, Kepa Arrizabalaga is rated among the best goalkeepers in England despite his bad form at the moment.

Sending him out without a better replacement could cost Chelsea another season while the 25-year-old may decide not to return to the Stamford Bridge should he find life in Spain interesting.

Chelsea are hoping for a Champions League qualification and will need the best to execute the outing.
