It's because Kepa played 7 games under Tuchel and had 5 clean sheets. In last 2 games he conceded 2 goals but he is not at fault for those. If our attackers delivered we would have won. 

Everything that happened under Lampard is forgotten and irrelevant. 

I berely missed Chelsea game in the last 20 years so ofc I know Turnbull but didn't used forums back then. 

I remember even Hilario delivered against Barca when Boulahrouz had Ronaldinho in pocket.

Woulda been Rays 64th Bday today. Such a shame

Marcus Rashford has raised more than £ 20m for poor children to receive free meals in the Summer holidays. Superb. He knew what it was like growing up with nothing. Now I'm Chelsea through and th

Why did we never see this type of energy for Ross Turnbull?

Ross Turnbull was probably a better goalkeeper lol

Also he was usually goalie 3, Hilario was gk 2 and he was just as terrible as Kepa and we often enough lost with him in goal like in the Community shield 2010 or that weird 2-4 vs City when he completely grabbed air several times

While I accept he wasn't given the best platform to perform under Lampard, Edou also played half a season under the same manager and was still stocking up on clean sheets bar the final month.

The biggest problem with Kepa isn't the obvious mistakes he makes it's what he doesn't do. People can say all these long shots he lets fly past him are "unsavable" but if that's the case why aren't other keepers conceding these type of goals regularly? How many of those type of goals have Cech, Tibo and Edou shipped between them for us? I'm sure there's a couple more but off the top of my head I can actually think of only one for each keeper (the first Cech ever let in for us, the Henderson goal and Xhaka goal) which leads to one of two outcomes, either most of them aren't as unstoppable as made out or the opponents actually do pretty much think "fuck it it's Kepa". I mean even his distribution has gone to crap which was the main reason we even signed him.

It's not like he was being world class then suddenly turned shit, the signs were there under Sarri we just tried to convince ourselves it was a first season in England thing.

The problem is Kepa isn´t dependable over the course of a whole month. He might string 2-3 clean sheets together, but there´s always a great possibility of a disasterclass, especially when you consider our opponents next January.

Remember when Cech was out in 2010? This happened. I honestly thought we lost the league back then and I can easily see such scenario if we are in a title race next season.

And to add further to that, if City and/or Liverpool roll out beast mode again we'll have to keep up such a relentless pace to the point even one dropped game could prove fatal.

I don't see that happening again this coming season. City and Liverpool were miles ahead of everyone that year, I'd be surprised to see City match last season's total next year, let alone a team hitting 90+ points.

I hope not but you can never rule out Pep teams especially going on mental winning runs.

Even last year with a 'standard' title winning points total they broke the record for consecutive wins in all comps.
