Video: Chelsea’s Kepa Comes up with Late Contender for Save of the Season

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga pulled off a late contender for save of the season this afternoon in his side’s must-win clash against Watford.

The Blues went into today’s Premier League showdown with this season’s FA Cup finalists at Stamford Bridge knowing they needed to collect all three points to keep alive their hopes of finishing in the top-four and competing in the Champions League next season.

But their most expensive signing of all-time Kepa was forced into an impressive early save against the Hornets, who started in an impressive fashion of their own:

The likes of Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero, Mo Salah and Raheem Sterling are all routinely praised for their goal-scoring exploits and, to be honest, we’re not even sure if there is an award for ‘Save of the Season’ but, if there is, Kepa’s stop today definitely deserves a bit of recognition, don’t you think?

Do you think Chelsea will end up in the top-four?
