Thomas Tuchel took a surprise decision by starting Kepa in goal last night against Newcastle United.

The player kept a clean sheet but as doubt was thrown over Mendy, Tuchel reminded who is number one.

“No, Edou is the number one,” admitted Tuchel. “This is clear. It was clear before the game and it stays like this.

“I was very happy that Kepa kept a second clean sheet in a row, it was a moment to let him feel the rhythm and build up his confidence. Not only in the cup game but in the home game at Stamford Bridge. This was the moment.

“It was clear before we hoped for the best performance [for him] and a clean sheet.

“Edou will be in goal from now on because he’s recovered physically and mentally, and today he is the number one.”

Tuchel then explained why Kepa played still.

“I was very happy that Kepa kept a second clean sheet in a row, it was a moment to let him feel the rhythm and build up his confidence. Not only in the cup game but in the home game at Stamford Bridge. This was the moment.

“It was clear before we hoped for the best performance [for him] and a clean sheet.

“Edou will be in goal from now on because he’s recovered physically and mentally, and today he is the number one.”
