Kepa Arrizabalaga is the only Chelsea player to play the entire Graham Potter reign up to this point and he says the mindset in the dressing room is a positive one following a run of four wins on the bounce.
The Spaniard showed up for the season in our opening Champions Association contest against Dinamo Zagreb quite a long time back now, which likewise happened to be Thomas Tuchel’s final game in control.
He has since responded well to being chosen in each outing by our new head coach Potter, keeping three clean sheets from four.
‘We are extremely cheerful. It has been an important week for us, we didn’t begin the gathering stages most effectively. We needed to win the two games against AC Milan,’ Kepa said.
‘In some cases, these kinds of games happen. It was a gigantic battle, we were engaged and quiet. We talked about that in the changing room at half-time [on Tuesday night].’
When asked to explain what life has been similar to under the new manager, the fourth of his Blues vocation, Kepa himself concedes he has noticed an up-turn in the two outcomes and performances.
‘He has begun in the most ideal way. We are improving, we have had only one month yet we’re doing great, there is a long approach,’ the goalkeeper said.
We are understanding his ideas. We have games like clockwork so it is a really important time, yet we need all the group in each game to battle for titles towards the end of the season.
‘We met each other in the gathering stage in the Europa Association a couple of years prior,’ Kepa uncovered, recalling his Athletic Bilbao days back in 2017.
‘We discussed that since I didn’t know at that moment he was the manager of Ostersund. Being back with him is so great.’
