A huge blow for Chelsea as key player was not in training this morning ahead of match Vs Arsenal FC on Sunday

It’s Chelsea against Arsenal this weekend and it seems that goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga will be missing from the clash with a foot injury.

The Spanish stopper has won back his number one spot under Graham Potter. After signing for £71m and having a few nightmare performances, Kepa had lost his place to Edouard Mendy, who impressed last season.

However, after suffering a foot injury and missing the midweek Champions League game, it seems Kepa will now also be missing for the clash with Arsenal. In a video feed shared by Sky Sports (via Football Daily), Sky confirmed that Kepa wasn’t actually taking part in training at all and with that, will miss the Arsenal game.

It means another chance for Mendy to reaffirm his status as the main man at Chelsea. He was very much the number one goalkeeper under Thomas Tuchel. However, since Graham Potter came in, Kepa has been the preferred option.

Kepa’s resurgence is a far cry from reports at the start of the summer that suggested he’d be on his way. Newcastle were thought to be looking at the Spaniard, who was labelled ‘fantastic‘ by Chelsea coach Arno Michels.

Chelsea know they need to beat Arsenal to breathe life into their season after last week’s horror loss at Brighton.
