I became a guardian deity in Aemul Complex. Kepa Arrizabalaga blocked 9.73 goals and was considered the best goalkeeper in the English Premier League (EPL).

Britain’s ‘GiveMe Sports’ said on the 16th (Korean time), “Chelsea’s goalkeeper Kepa has risen to the top of the EPL and the turnaround is complete. His EPL career seemed to be over, but the study published this time shows how Kepa has changed things.” Reported.

Kepa is the main character with the highest transfer fee ever for a goalkeeper. Ahead of the 2018-19 season, Thibaut Courtois left for Real Madrid, and Chelsea, who were urgently looking for a sale, signed Kepa as a buyout. Due to the nature of Athletic Bilbao, which consists only of Basque origins, bloodlines, and related club youth, it was inevitable to pay an astronomical transfer fee of 80 million euros (approximately 110.5 billion won).

His first season was okay. In the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) final, he caused the famous ‘substitution refusal’, but the opinion was that he protected the back door of Chelsea, which was almost shaken by lifting the European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League (UEL). . 온라인바카라

However, after that, his performance declined markedly. Due to overlapping personal history and sluggishness in the game, Kepa completely gave up his starting position to Edouard Mendy. In the 2021-22 season EFL Cup final, he also gave Liverpool the championship with a fatal miss without a penalty shootout.

Opportunity for reversal came again. Instead of Mendy, who had been constantly exposed from the second half of last season, Kepa returned to the league from October and regained ‘Number One’. Since then, he has continued to show stable saves and has become a ray of light for Chelsea, whose organizational power has weakened since the owner changed.

This is also shown statistically. Kepa reliably kept the goal with 18 goals and 9 clean sheets in 21 matches in all competitions. In the league, he showed monstrous save skills with an 81.5% save rate.

His ‘shot stopping score’ was also outstanding. Kepa conceded a whopping 9.73 fewer goals in the statistics, and proudly ranked first in the EPL alone. This is a figure that proves that Kepa is the driving force behind Chelsea’s ability to stay in third place (22 goals conceded) even while their defense is faltering.
