Chelsea beat Watford on Sunday by three goals securing Champions League qualification for the next season and they have their keeper to thank for.

Kepa, who made the world record €71m switch from Atletic Bilbao to Chelsea in the summer has had a solid campaign in between the sticks for the Blues.

The Spaniard has kept an impressive 22 clean sheets in 51 appearances and with David De Gea’s recent dip in form, many back him to claim the number one spot for his national side.

The only Blemish in his debut season in English football was perhaps the infamous refusal he displayed to come off against Manchester City in the League Cup final but he seems to have moved on from the incident, his moral seems re-boosted and it was evident yesterday afternoon.

Watford came out all guns blazing in the first half putting the hosts’ under tremendous amounts of pressure.

The end result could have been otherwise had Troy Deeney’s header popped up in the left top corner only to be emphatically denied by Kepa.

The save invigorated the players and crowd alike and Maurizio Sarri’s men took the game from then on.

Take a look as to how the Blues praised Kepa for his heroics,

We’ll just call you Kepa,
We’ll just call you Kepa,
Arrizabalaga-
We’ll just call you Kepa,
