The Transfer window isn't yet in fact open, however in front of Thursday's challenge with Manchester City, Chelsea are exhibiting a reasonable want to challenge Liverpool and Pep Guardiola's men as quickly as time permits. The London club have just made sure about the mark of Hakim Ziyech in front of next season and as of late struck an arrangement to sign RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner. 

In spite of those two sizeable ventures, Chelsea's spending looks set to proceed, with Kai Havertz mooted as a potential summer appearance. The Bayer Leverkusen aggressor is only 20 years of age however he's displayed why he's meriting a level above lately, indenting 11 objectives and five aids the Bundesliga this season while likewise playing in a wide range of positions. 


His procurement would be a genuine proclamation of goal for Frank Lampard, particularly considering Leicester's Ben Chilwell is likewise connected, yet one issue position looks set to remain which is probably going to impact the group's capacity to challenge City and Liverpool. Basically, paying little heed to the outfield stars that transition to Stamford Bridge, Kepa Arrizabalaga stays as the club's best option goalkeeper.

The Spaniard moved to England two years prior for a record entirety of £72m, however he's since performed underneath normal in contrast with Europe's best.Kepa has confronted 71 shots on track in the Premier League this season, sparing just 43 of those which leaves him with a spare level of simply 57.7% - the most exceedingly terrible in the division. 


Those looked from open play are presented beneath, with off-target shots grayed out.For point of view, Alisson Becker's spare rate is 81.4%, and Ederson's is 69%. 

Post-shot Expected Goals - which offers a knowledge into whether a goalkeeper has a better than expected capacity to stop shots - catches Kepa in a negative light. 


This season, he's been relied upon to yield four objectives less than he's really delivered, with just Southampton's Angus Gunn failing to meet expectations by a more prominent sum. 

Football is a low scoring game, implying that one little blunder can definitely change the course of a match, particularly when that mix-up is made by the man between the sticks. Goalkeepers are inclined to taking a secondary lounge when their group is performing admirably, yet they are urgent while contending in the greatest counterparts for the most esteemed distinctions.

Notwithstanding the quality of Chelsea's assault this season and next - on the off chance that they are happy to persevere with lacks in objective, they will experience the ill effects of irregular minutes and their outcomes will keep on fluctuating more so than a title-winning side can manage. 


Considering the assaulting capability that Guardiola has available to him for the forthcoming gathering, Kepa is probably going to be exceptionally occupied on the day and he's demonstrated that when given shots that are hard to spare, he once in a while beats desires. 

Lampard's men are more likely than not set to contend on Thursday in front of improving one year from now yet until they perceive how basic the goalkeeping position is, they will keep on missing the mark.
