Over the past two seasons, Chelsea’s expensive goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has been relegated to second choice role.

Kepa has been second choice since the club signed Edouard Mendy in 2020. However, it seems Kepa is now back to his best form, and has regained his place as Chelsea’s first choice goalkeeper under new boss Graham Potter.

For Kepa, it’s time to enjoy the work he has put in over time.

“We work on these types of things during the week, but then in the game it’s completely different,” Kepa said.

“You have no time to think. You have to be ready because anything can happen.

“I’m feeling very well, with confidence, with and without the ball. Self-confidence and belief in your work, in what you’re doing, and belief in the process is very important.

“Of course I had really tough moments. I had really good moments, but in the end it’s like life. You have ups and downs and you have to be strong mentally, sticking with your ideas and keeping working. Now I am enjoying all the work.”
