Chelsea went down 3-1 against Everton in the Premier League yesterday in a lacklustre performance from The Blues.
The home team were really up for it after the sacking of their former Manager Marco Silva in the week and now being lead by Duncan Ferguson.
Chelsea once again were terrible at the back, lacked leadership and confidence, and collectively were just poor and always wanted to play safe.
But even that didn’t work, and goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga was just as at fault as any of the back line.
Chelsea fans have started to question his ability on more than one occasion this season, and once again doubts crept in after yesterdays poor showing.
Searching through Twitter comments after the match, it is clear to see that some fans are more than just doubting his ability, some really don’t rate him at all.
I can’t see anything other than Chelsea sticking with their club record signing though.
Kepa is absolutely done out here.
From giving the ball away to allowing the ball go through your legs like that. Couldn't be more embarrassing, another way too inconsistent player at this club.

Chelsea’s shopping list for January :
– World class CB
– Striker to replace Michy and Giroud
– GK to replace Kepa
– RW to replace Pedro
You have to show ambition in this next market, leave likeability aside and focus on the team, half of these players are just not good enough.

Kepa needs out of the rut, but he’s been shambokic for a while. Doesn’t command his area, has terribly weak wrists. Good shot stopper but doesn’t account for enough in this league, especially with younger inexperienced defenders.

Imagine we paid £72 mil for Kepa and he can’t save us a point or make crucial saves at anytime..
He isnt the GK we need.

4 BIG ISSUES
1) I keep backing Kepa but in all honesty his inconsistencies are bothering me
2) Isn’t Emerson a LB anymore? This Azpi thing needs to stop
3) What happened to Tomori/Zouma partnership?
4) Willian as a winger needs to give us goals/assists – WE NEED END PRODUCT!

Kepa is another one who has a poor mentality. If things aren't going well, his confidence is blown which is why he keeps making mistakes. We need leaders and commanding players – this needs to start at the back.

Ye Kova great
Kepa I think needs a proper coach.
He looked like he was going to cry when their second goal went in

Definitely 👍👍 kepa is an accident waiting to happen at the moment

Can help but feeling sad that we actually let @marcin_bulka go. He looked a great prospect and could and should have been our new no. 1 GK. Insane reflexes and great attitude also. Instead we choose to splash £72 mil on a thin, softhanded, guy who makes drops every week. #CFC

Ngl I’m over him. Not good enough.

We need to shop for a new keeper as well, run out of patience with Kepa. Chelsea paid a world record fee and he can’t even do the basics. He has been a let down all season. We had chance to get a point there late on
