Jamie Carragher said Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is going through a ‘nightmare’ after another costly mistake in his side’s 2-0 defeat to Liverpool.
The Spaniard was again at fault with the Blues after accidentally passing the ball straight to the onrushing Sadio Mane to easily finish the Liverpool forward.
With Chelsea losing 1-0 and 10 men at the time of a foul, it was a moment that summed up a disappointing day for the West London side, who also saw a late Jorginho penalty saved by Alisson Becker.

The Sky Sky Sports expert admitted he feels sorry for the Spaniard after a string of mistakes
His mistake comes after a number of unconvincing screenings last season, which appear to have continued into this season after he also made a mistake for Leandro Trossard’s goal for Brighton in Chelsea’s season opener on Monday.
While the Sky Sports pundit was full of praise for Mane’s desire to intercept the pass after giving the ball away, he admitted that he was starting to feel for the 25-year-old.
The reason they are the best players in the world is their insistence. Chelsea stranded in that midfield, ‘said the former Liverpool stalwart after the game.
‘As players you are going through difficult times and Kepa is currently going through one.

It is yet another one of many mistakes made by the keeper whose confidence has failed him
‘You actually feel a little sorry for him now. He’s just having one of those nightmare moments. ‘
With Kepa showing no signs of arresting his troubling form, Chelsea has been actively looking for a number one replacement, with Rennes’ goalkeeper Eduoard Mendy believing Frank Lampard to be the first choice.
Fellow expert Jamie Redknapp suggested it’s no surprise that Chelsea is looking elsewhere, adding, “ You can’t have passengers in the modern game. That’s why Chelsea wants to get a new goalkeeper, that’s why they have a new center-back and a new left back. ‘

When asked what needs to be done to improve Kepa’s form, Lampard replied, ‘To try to give him confidence because a goalkeeper relies on trust. These things happen. ‘
How do you gauge trust? I do not know. It’s just a plain mistake today. ‘
