Graham Potter has had to pick Kepa in his first two games in charge because of an injury, and he seems pretty pleased with how the stopper has done, despite conceding a goal in each game.

We noted one loose ball in the first half which Kepa didn’t go for, but he wasn’t punished for it.
Potter will have a real decision to make next week if Mendy is cleared to play.
