Lampard: “Kepa has been unfairly criticized”

Kepa Arrizabalaga was dropped from Chelsea’s Starting lineup against Westbrom last weekend.

Today in his pre-match conference ahead of the Carabao Cup game against Tottenham Hotspur, Lampard was asked if Kepa has played his last game for Chelsea now that Edouard Mendy has been signed.

 "No, I won't go to that point. It's been a hard time for him. Kepa is a young man and a lot of the spotlight has been unfair."

The Blues Boss was also asked to address the future of German Defender Antonio Ruediger and Victor Moses who has returned to Chelsea from his loan spell at Inter Milan

"I wouldn't assume anything (on Rudiger) I will make no assumption,"  "At the moment Victor isn't in that position with us, he hasn't been part of the bubble. We will see how the week goes," 

Lampard believes there is always room for improvement after Westbrom almost stole victory from the hands of his side last time out.

"They were clear individual mistakes, you can't hide from them," 

 "The players held their hands up. We have to take it on the chin. The positive we got a point from that position, but of course, we wanted more.

"I am not making excuses, but some of the work we put in last year was why we were successful. off the ball our work was great. We haven't had the chance to work as much this year. We are in a process, we have to fight through it. Every game is an opportunity to improve"
