Thomas Tuchel hails Kepa Arrizabalaga as “a big part” of Chelsea’s Carabao Cup progress

The £ 72million signing, which has largely lost its starting role since Edouard Mendy signed for the club in 2020, was the hero again and saved from Theo Walcott in a penalty shootout before to put Will Smallbone in front of his kick. .

“He produces and is also full of confidence,” Tuchel said.

“He has good experiences with us, but we have to do it again and again.

“Just because you won a penalty shootout doesn’t mean you’re doing it all over again. Full credit and that’s a special thing in football and he was very focused and calm again.

“Kepa was a big part of it.”
