Terrible fact: that is Why the world's most expensive dropped

Many wrinkled on the nose as Chelsea in the summer of 2018 triggered Kepa Arrizabalaga frikøbsklausul of 618 million dollars and made the relatively untested Italian from Athletic Club in Bilbao for the world's most expensive goalkeeper ever.

Kepa replaced Thibaut Courtois, who was snatched by Real Madrid, and since then he has been a permanent man in the cage at Chelsea. First, under the leadership of Maurizio Sarri with any degree of success - and since the summer under Frank Lampard. With not so much success.

the Title as given the nod was taken from the 25-year-old Kepa after the 2-2 match against Arsenal 21. January, where he is not so too good by Hector Bellerins late equalizing. But the Arsenal match was probably just the straw that got the cup to overflow for Frank Lampard.

Kepas statistics for the 2019/2020 season in the Premier League is so utterly sad reading. The world's most expensive goalkeeper has the worst save percentage of the 19 of the league's goalies, who have played a minimum of 15 matches.

Only 53,6% of terminations against Chelsea-the cage has the Italian managed to stop, which is to say, that the opponents can assume that almost every second shot in the frame goes in the box.

It also means that Chelsea only keeps the goal clean every fifth fight with Kepa as the keeper. For comparison, keeps Liverpool's Allison remove every other match, while Kasper Schmeichel makes it in 32 percent of his matches for Leicester.

The poor performance has been Frank Lampard to pull the pensionsklare Willy Caballero out from hiding. Increasing the argentinian has turned 38 years old and has his contract about four months, but regard anyway its 13 years younger - and somewhat more expensive colleague to the bench.

Frank Lampard can then fret over, that the Caballero faced with virtually the same save percentage as Kepa. He has, however, only had four tough matches against Leicester, Manchester United, Tottenham and Bournemouth to show off.

According to Chelsea manager means the degradation is not that Kepa does not have any future in the London club, he explained the other day, when the press asked about the topic.

- Yes, all the players are in control of their destiny in terms of how they play and coach, said Lampard, who also elaborated on Kepas situation.

- He has trained well and supported the team. I say the same thing every week, because I get asked every week, but he has been good, it sounded diplomatic from the Chelsea boss.

It will then probably also be a good idea to get the time in the world most expensive goalie again. According to English media he serves well over 1.3 million dollars a week, on a contract that runs until the summer of 2025.

And it's probably pretty doubtful about the other clubs are ready to pay approximately the same transfer, as Chelsea pungede out with for a year and a half ago.

Kepa Arrizabalaga will get again the chance to reconquer space between the rods, when Chelsea this Tuesday evening meetings Liverpool in the FA Cup's fifth round at home at Stamford Bridge.
