Former England goalkeeper, Ben Foster has told Chelsea to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga as their goalkeeper, insisting the £72m Spaniard should have saved Everton’s late equaliser at Stamford Bridge over the weekend.
Chelsea were hoping to make it a fourth straight win on Saturday evening after Kai Havertz restored their lead with a 76th-minute penalty.
However, Graham Potter’s side were handed a late shock when Ellis Simms came off the bench to score his first goal for Everton.
The draw earned Sean Dyche’s side a crucial point and frustrated Chelsea fans.
Foster felt that Arrizabalaga should have done better when the striker beat him from a tight angle.
Foster doubts the goalkeeper has the pedigree to be Chelsea’s No. 1.
“Let’s talk about Everton’s equaliser because I think Kepa should save it,” Foster said on his YouTube channel. “A top goalkeeper saves that.
“These are fine margins but I think a top goalie has to save that. He fell a little bit short.
“I don’t think Kepa is the right guy for it, full stop. I don’t think he’s the long-term solution,” he said.
Foster hopes that Chelsea “will need to go into the market and sign somebody.”
