Simon Johnson jinxed him the moment he wrote that article on him earlier today, I knew he was now due a big time blunder.

Well folks i need you to remember that its never Kepa's fault. Reading some previous comments i could find inspiration to blame the defense, midfielders, full backs,  the position of the near stars and the weather. Also maybe the fans should be more honest and ask themselves: "what did i do wrong in that goal".

 

We can't put the responsibility in the keeper for his faults.

should have done much better for Wolves equalizer, nothing he could do for the 2nd. William was crying like a bitch asking for a foul that never came instead of marking his man and we ended up conceding. Embarassing

"Obviously the price was very high - £71m is a lot of money," he told Sky Sports News.

"I'm aware of this but given the transfer market situation and how things are going, it is normal so I don't need to focus on the value of the transfer.

"I do need to focus on playing my football and what's happening on the pitch rather than off it... I want to be myself and not think about it.

"I'm here now playing for Chelsea. I chose to leave my home at Athletic Bilbao and it was an important step in my career.

"I wouldn't call it pressure [replacing Courtois], I would just say it is how the transfer market goes. He went and I came in and I'm not one to focus on the comings and going.

"I'm focused on myself and there is a great opportunity for me to come here. I wanted to take advantage of this and enjoy my football and look forward and not back.

"I'm happy here both on a personal and a team level and I'm happy here in London. Looking towards the future excites me with the possibilities we have to improve and I'm excited about what the future might bring."

Just 2 clean sheets away from bettering Courtois' clean sheet record in his own debut season in 2014/15.

Courtois didn't play in Europa League and EFL Cup against (below-) average opponents.

That being said, I'm really impressed with Kepa. No big complaints with him so far.

True but clean sheets are clean sheets and if you want to get all picky, then Courtois kept 1 clean sheet in 2 League Cup appearances, which is the same amount as Kepa and both played against Premier League oppositions. Courtois may have played in the Champions League but the quality of opponents weren't exactly proper UCL level with his only 2 clean sheets coming against Schalke and Sporting Lisbon. In the Premier League, Courtois ended 2014/15 with 13 clean sheets. Kepa's currently on 9 (only Alisson has more clean sheets than him after 20 games). Should be able to get at least 5 more in the remaining 18 games.

Courtois played twice against against Liverpool, while Kepa faced Bournemouth.

Anyway, I don't want to downplay Kepa. As I said, he's been more than good and most certainly will have more clean-sheets this season in PL than Courtois in his first season.

He's had 10 clean sheets in 21 league games and 15 in 27 in all comps, that would be considered excellent numbers even for prime Cech.

Love him, GK (other than back-up if Bulka doesn't work out) is sorted for years

Defence is definitely not the problem for this team. Also credit to Sarri for making it so solid.

Kepa has been one of our better players this season alongside Hazard, Luiz and Rudiger

Only Alisson has more clean sheets than Kepa this season. Kepa is two behind Alisson and two ahead of Ederson and Lloris.

With Marcos fucking Alonso playing in front of him, the bloke is a goalkeeping genius :D
