Frank Lampard has insisted that he has been happy with the form of Kepa Arrizabalaga for Chelsea FC this season.

The Spanish goalkeeper has come under fire for some of his form this season, with the shot-stopper at fault for one of the goals Chelsea FC conceded during the 2-2 draw with Valencia in the Champions League last week.

Daniel Wass’ cross caught out the 25-year-old Chelsea FC goalkeeper and allowed the Spanish side to earn a point from the crunch Champions League clash.

Kepa has started all of Chelsea FC’s Premier League games this season and he has also made five Champions League appearances for the west London club.

Despite his form being something of a talking point in recent weeks, Lampard has insisted that he has been happy with Kepa’s attitude and work ethic.

Speaking in a news conference before Chelsea FC’s clash with West Ham United, Lampard said: “I’m happy. I know Kepa as a professional is a keeper who – and you can see it in his attitude and how he trains every day – is striving to be better, as he should do at his age and the status that he’s at.

“He will want to get better all the time, and there have been a few instances this season where he would be the first one to say he can do better.

“That’s football at the top level, but I’m happy with him and his work ethic.”

Chelsea FC will now turn their attentions towards their preparations for their home clash against Aston Villa in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

The Blues are aiming to try and maintain their place in the top four this season after they finished third last term under Maurizio Sarri.
