“A top keeper saves it” – Fans and pundits criticise Kepa after Chelsea concede another soft goal

Football can change in an instant, and this game between Chelsea and Crystal Palace is the perfect example.

Chelsea started strongly and managed to pick up a two goal lead through Olivier Giroud and Christian Pulisic. With 30 minutes gone, they were in total control of the game

Then Wilf Zaha strode forward and thumped a hopeful ball towards their goal. Kepa was beaten all ends up, and the ball flew into the net.

At first it looked just like a brilliant strike, but as more replays were shown it looked more and more like a Kepa error. Gary Neville on commentary duties and then Jamie Redknapp and Ashley Cole in the studio all agreed that the stopper could have done better.

“A top keeper saves it,” Gary Neville said instantly on commentary duties.

This is looking like one of the worst investments we’ve made in recent times – although he made a cracking save at the end to save us two points.
