Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is not giving hope on making it into the Spain squad for the upcoming FIFA World Cup, according to reports.Marca (per Sports Witness) has claimed that everything has changed in the last month for the shot-stopper, who Graham Potter has shown incredible faith in. The report claims that Kepa is a ‘key’ member of the team under the former Brighton & Hove Albion coach, having kept clean sheets in his previous four appearances.
Kepa has been brought back into Chelsea’s starting lineup following a loss of form and injury to Edouard Mendy and the Spaniard has made the most of his opportunity. The former Athletic Bilbao man has refused to give up hope of going to Qatar, despite being behind Unai Simón, Robert Sánchez and David Raya in Luis Enrique’s pecking order.

According to Mundo Deportivo, as per the aforementioned report, Potter has overseen a resurgence in Kepa’s career, despite the keeper reportedly being keen to leave Stamford Bridge over the summer. Kepa is still the most expensive goalkeeper in history, following his move from Bilbao in 2018.Kepa has endured a largely miserable time in west London, with a string of errors plaguing his time as he was ultimately replaced by Mendy. He had previously played just 11 Premier League games in the past two seasons before his recent spell back in the team.His most recent display was a stunning showing against Aston Villa, as he made several world class stops to keep the hosts out as Chelsea won 2-0.
