Watch Kepa Arrizabalaga Mastered The Crossbar Challenge By Hitting It EIGHT Times In A Row During Chelsea Training


Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga showed just how good he is with his feet by hitting the crossbar EIGHT times in a row during training.

Arrizabalaga has fallen down the pecking order since his £72 million move in 2019 and is second choice to Edouard Mendy.

The 26-year-old didn’t go away with Spain to Euro 2020 and has reported to the club’s Cobham training base.

In a clip posted to social media, Arrizabalaga passed the time by completing the crossbar challenge with complete ease.

Takes some skill to be that accurate so consistently.

Arrizabalaga arrived from Athletic Bilbao as one of the world’s top, young goalkeepers.

His talent on the ball has never been questioned but he’s failed to impress between the sticks at Stamford Bridge.

Fans have reacted to the clip and they’ve joked Arrizabalaga should try playing outfield for a while.

One commented: “Would’ve been a better striker option than Alvaro Morata for 17/18 tbf.”

A second added: “Maybe we should play him upfront instead of Timo Werner.”

Someone said: “Ronaldinho: Am I a joke to you?”

While another simply put: “The difficulty in this, Kepa is no joke!”

A move to Lazio has been mooted for Arrizabalaga, who made just 12 appearances for the Blues last season.

Frank Lampard and Thomas Tuchel both preferred Mendy, who started in May’s Champions League final win over Manchester City.

Chelsea finished fourth in the Premier League and are looking to replenish their squad.

 Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland is their key target but a move doesn’t look likely this summer.

They’re also set to trim their squad to fund their new signings, but supporters are NOT happy with the latest outgoing.

According to David Ornstein, Crystal Palace are close to completing the permanent signing of Marc Guehi in a deal worth a reported £20 million.

The 21-year-old defender, who starred for Swansea City last season, is set to pen a five-year deal at Selhurst Park.

Chelsea do have a sell-on clause as well as matching rights for a future transfer, but it’s yet another young prospect leaving in search of action.

Do you think Chelsea can challenge for the Premier League title?
