“Kepa is a massive issue”

Chelsea have a lot of business to do in this upcoming transfer window, according to two of their ex-players Chris Sutton and Craig Burley.

Sutton believes obviously that the defence has being a disaster but he also wants Kepa Arrizabalaga to be replaced identifying him as a “massive issue”

“What's been the positives for Chelsea this season?

"The likes of [Mason] Mount coming to the fore, Tammy Abraham coming to the fore, they've now done some good business with Ziyech and Werner, so things are looking up.

"But they need to do some more business as well.

"I think the goalkeeper is a massive issue and defensively they've conceded too many goals.

"Frank will know that but there's no point worrying about that at this moment in time.

"Get over the line, get a Champions League spot, you know the riches which come from the Champions League and the finance which comes with that, and then he can address all these issues once the season finishes."

His former teammate Craig Burley also agreed with his sentiments identifying the centreback and leftback position as weaknesses 

"What they've done is they've gone out and bought attacking players so far.

"But I think we can see the centre-half position and certainly the left-back position needs addressing.

"Although [Marcos] Alonso does some good things going forward, he has generally operated better as a wing-back.

"So I think there are some huge concerns there in that position, as well as the goalkeeper who clearly was untested [in a 1-0 win over Norwich] but there has been animosity between the goalkeeper and the coaching staff, we know that from the last six months or so."
