'I have the confidence to turn it around': Kapa aim to reclaim Chelsea no 1 spot

The Spain international has been on the bench since his mistake against Liverpool. The 25-year-old admits that it is not the situation he has dreamt of.

However, he insists that he still believes in his chances to play regularly for the Blues.

"I feel good, strong, confident," Kepa Arrizabalaga told a press conference, as quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

"It may not be the desired or dreamed situation, but sometimes we have to experience situations like this. I have the confidence to work and turn it around.

"I do not have the feeling of being a substitute. We have three goalkeepers, and the level is very high. It is the coach who chooses the eleven, and we have to try to do our best and if we do not play, add as much as possible.

"I’m in a great club, in a great national team. I feel lucky to belong to these two teams. Obviously all players want to play. I do not consider myself beyond the day to day. In football, it is difficult to look at the medium-long term.

"Everything can change. Now the closest thing is the national team, and my focus is put in these three games."

It has been clear for some time that Kepa will have to stay at Chelsea, as there was no other club ready to even take him on loan, let alone to afford a permanent transfer.

It's going to be hard for Kepa to reclaim his place, though: he has not featured for the Blues since his mistake against Liverpool. With Edouard Mendy looking comfortable, the Spaniard risks being sidelined at least until January. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
