Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said he was happy with the goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, despite a number of events that the Spanish international felt he could do better for the Blues.
He also made a recent injury update on Antonio Rudiger.
“I’m happy. Like everybody, we’re trying to get better,” Lampard told Football London at a pre-match press conference on Friday before the Chelsea Premier League match against West Ham United.
“Kepa is a professional and you can see it every day. He’s a goalkeeper trying to get better by age and status – competing with Chelsea No. 1, the big price tag, the No. 1 Spain goalkeeper (De Gea).
“There have been several incidents that have always said they want to improve and this season can do better. This football is at the highest level, but I am happy with it and ethical behavior.”
Lampard added: “Rudiger is approaching, has done a very good week with his reality and the reality has not been played for a very long time.
“It seems like an injury is already over before a mini-season. We have to adjust to it now and work hard to make sure it is. It’s days and weeks, not months, but good news for us.”
