Melchiot Backs Lampard's decision in dropping kepa

Former Blues defender Mario Melchiot has said that Kepa Arrizabalaga is in danger of losing his place in the first team if he continues to be a "liability".

Asked if the Argentine should remain in the team, Melchiot told Sky Sports News: "As long as he keeps performing.

"We all know Caballero; sometimes he gets too comfortable on the ball and takes too much time.

“I don't want him to take any risks - just play a simple game, like you expect a goalkeeper to do.

"If he does that, I don't see how Kepa is going to get his spot back."

Kepa, 25, has come in for criticism this season after a number of unconvincing performances.

Prior to the Leicester game, he had played every game for Chelsea in the Premier League this season, with Caballero preferred in the cup competitions.
