Thomas Tuchel has confirmed a conversation with his Chelsea goalkeepers after a series of Edouard Mendy errors, with Kepa Arrizabalaga waiting in the wings.
Tuchel saw Edouard Mendy almost cost points against West Ham after his mistake first allowed them to take the lead, with the VAR then saving him from another high-profile error late on in controversial fashion.
Tuchel was pictured looking at Kepa who was a former starting goalkeeper siting the bench, it has led to a debate about whether Tuchel makes the change after Kepa failed to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.
“Yeah, he tried [to leave]. He tried, he checked his options, which we were aware of,” Tuchel told reporters. “They were not satisfying for him, for us. So he stayed.
“I’m very happy about that. I was always very clear, directly to him, that I’d love him to stay. And in my point of view, he’s absolutely ready to play. It’s on us if we give him the chance or not but he’s 100% ready given how he behaves and how trains.”
