Chelsea have two top goalkeepers in Edouard Mendy and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

However, since the signing of Mendy, Kepa has been relegated to second choice goalie.

Meanwhile, Mendy has dropped form since the start of the season, and there have been calls for Kepa to be given some game time.

Kepa has been in goal in the last three games for Chelsea following an injury to Mendy.

The Spaniard has been impressive in goal, but Chelsea boss Graham Potter has said he isn’t in a hurry to name his first choice goalkeeper. Kepa would however be in goal for the Champions League game against AC Milan.

“If you look at what we’ve got over the next six weeks, it’s an incredible schedule so I’m in no rush to label anybody one or two or anything like that,” said Potter.

“Firstly, I want to help Kepa enjoy his football and play at a really good level, which he did against Crystal Palace. And then I want to help Eddie get fit and ready to play, which he’s done really well so far.

“And then we’ve got two goalkeepers and in an ideal world you want football to decide, But we’ve got two ones that we really believe in and that’s a good situation for us.”
