Kepa’s Valliant efforts and a consistent attitude has helped him carve out a turnaround for himself under Tuchel’s management and guidance.
The Spaniard signed for the Blues in 2018 for a total of £71.6 million, making him the world’s most expensive goalkeeper.
Fans were generally pleased with Kepa’s performance in his first season; however, things went horribly wrong once Maurizio Sarri left, and he was eventually dropped by Frank Lampard.
But, under Thomas Tuchel, he’s made a spectacular comeback, as Sky highlighted with a graph comparing his performance to “expected goals.” Of course, under Tuchel, he’s mostly played in cup games against lower-league opponents, which is an essential reminder to keep in mind when looking at these figures.
Under Tuchel, he has played 15 games of which he has kept a clean sheet in 62% of them and also recorded a save percentage of 83%.
His brilliance was on full display as he helped Chelsea keep a clean sheet against Tottenham.
