Former Atlético and Chelsea player Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink criticized Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga after his mistake in Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Luton in the FA Cup. According to Hasselbaink, any other Premier League goalkeeper would have avoided Jordan Clark’s goal for Luton. “For me, he has to stop that goal, sorry”, the former Dutch striker told BBC Sport.
“It’s like that, the goalkeeper sees a lot of the ball. What is the forward going to do there? He is going to hit the ball. Every time he occupies the goal in Chelsea he knows that he is under pressure because everyone looks at him for how he started, for how he did last year. And this obviously doesn’t help him either, “he continued. And he sentenced. “If you look at the other goalkeepers in the Premier, anyone would save this. That’s where the problem lies.”
Lampard supports you
For his part, Lampard did come out to defend Kepa despite his mistake: “He had several worthwhile saves that prevented the 2-2 goalkeeper. You have to bear in mind that he is not playing regularly and then returning to goal is difficult. He’s a good goalkeeper and he’s working well “:
