Chelsea and Spain goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has tipped himself to reclaim the No 1 spot at Chelsea as he believes that things will change for the better for him despite Frank Lampard bringing a in new first-choice goalkeeper Edouard Mendy this summer.

The Spaniard has been the point of discussion at Stanford Bridge after he made numerous high-profile errors and it prompted Frank Lampard to go into the market this summer.

Chelsea signed Edouard Mendy from Stade Rennes for £22million as Kepa’s replacement during the summer transfer window

.Kepa despite being dropped from the starting XI has backed himself to reclaim his spot.

I feel good. Strong, confident. Maybe not the dream situation. We have to experience things like this,’ Kepa said at a press conference ahead of Spain’s matches against Switzerland and Ukraine in the UEFA Nations League.

‘I am confident to turn the situation around. When I have the opportunity to play I will try to do it the best possible.

‘Obviously all the players want to play. I do not consider myself beyond the day to day. In football it is difficult to look at the medium or long term. Obviously I want to play. The closest thing is the national team and I think about that.

‘I feel like a footballer every day. I feel strong, very good at the national team and very good at Chelsea. It is a great club and I feel lucky.’

Frank Lampard decided to give Edouard Mendy his Premier League debut in Chelsea’s last Saturday 4-0 win over London rivals Crystal Palace and he kept a clean sheet in the process.
