Kepa has been out of favour for Chelsea manager Frank Lampard, who has been quite vocal of replacing the Spanish goalkeeper. He was not included in the matchday line up in the past five games, with Caballero starting for Lampard. However, the Argentine had failed to impress the Blues as Chelsea won just once with him between the sticks.

Chelsea vs Liverpool highlights: Kepa produces stunning triple save

In the 19th minute of the game, Kepa displayed the reason why Chelsea had signed him from Spanish side Athletic Bilbao. In the first half of the game, Liverpool striker Sadio Mane was close to scoring for the Reds as he struck the ball close to Kepa but the Spaniard was quick to react and deny the Senegalese international.

The ball bounced back towards Divock Origi, who was present in the box. Origi again struck it targetting the net, but Kepa was proactive to save it. In the third attempt, Curtis Jones, who was positioned in front of the goal, again hit it but Kepa was in no mood to give any leeway to Jurgen Klopp’s side.
