Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has won the Premier League’s Save of the Month award for October following his heroics in Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Aston Villa.

The goalkeeper award is new for this season and recognises the efforts of those stopping goals rather than scoring or assisting them. Nick Pope and Jordan Pickford have picked up the award already this term.

Kepa saw off challenge from other nominees – Bernd Leno (Fulham), Ederson (Manchester City), Hugo Lloris (Tottenham), Dean Henderson (Nottingham Forest), David De Gea (Manchester United) – to win the award.

Congratulations, Kepa!
