Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel including Kepa Arrizabalaga in his starting lineup at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium today.
What’s the story?
Tottenham and Chelsea will face each other in the Premier League today.
The London derby between Spurs and the Blues will be held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Chelsea manager Tuchel has named his starting lineup for the game.
Kepa has started in goal instead of Edouard Mendy.
Mendy has been playing well for last season’s Champions League winners, but the goalkeeper has an injury and is not in the team.
What are Tottenham Hotspur fans saying?
As you can see from the tweets below, Tottenham fans are delighted with the news that Kepa is starting.
Well, some of them anyway?
Because Kepa has a reputation of making mistakes and is not as reliable as Mendy.
Kepa – who cost Chelsea £71 million in transfer fees in August 2018, as reported by BBC Sport at the time – made a number of mistakes in 2019-20, which is why the Blues went out and signed Mendy from Rennes in the summer of 2020.
