Fans Rip Apart Chelsea Star For Being ‘Absolutely Crap’ in 2-1 Loss To Fulham

Chelsea fans on Twitter have blasted Kepa Arrizabalaga for making avoidable mistakes during the Premier League clash against Fulham on Thursday night.

The game marked the debut of Joao Felix as a Blue. Felix was a livewire throughout the first half of the game.

It was Fulham, however, who scored first. Willian’s deflected effort found the back of the net in the 25th minute of the game. The Brazilian refused to celebrate against his former club in an honorable gesture.

Kalidou Koulibaly managed to find the equalizer for Graham Potter’s team in the 47th minute of the match.

Joao Felix’s debut ended in an unexpected manner, though. The Portuguese attacker was sent off in the 58th minute for a high challenge on Fulham right-back Kenny Tete. Felix will be suspended for three games after receiving a straight red card.

The proceedings took an even worse turn for Potter’s team when Fulham once again took the lead in the 73rd minute. Andreas Pereira, formerly of Manchester United, delivered a delicious cross into the area.

Carlos Vinicius rose the highest to find the back of the net. Fans, however, blamed Kepa for how he dealt with the cross inside the area. The Spanish custodian was indecisive in his movement and was left in no-man’s land.

Vinicius, who replaced Aleksandr Mitrovic in the starting lineup, made no mistake in heading past Kepa.

Fans on Twitter pointed out that after a surprise career resurgence, Kepa is back in his element and is once again making costly errors.

Kepa’s role in Manchester City’s goal at Stamford Bridge on January 5 was also questionable. He had a few nervy moments against Fulham as well.

Fans slammed the Spaniard for his performance during Chelsea’s defeat. Here are some of the best reactions across Twitter:
