Willy Cabellero Did Enough To Please Frank Lampard In Surprise Start

Frank Lampard was pleased with Willy Cabellero’s performance in 2-2 draw against Leicester City.

Having started the FA Cup fixture against Hull City last week, the Spaniard made a surprise start for Chelsea over €80m signing, Kepa Arrizibalaga on Saturday.

Lampard already explained before the match on why he decided to drop Kepa following his recent performances. He also backed Cabellero’s effort, claiming him to be helpless in both Leicester City’s goals.

“I thought his performance was pretty good, he makes a good save and was comfortable with his feet,” Lampard told BT Sport. “I was right behind the Harvey Barnes goal and it was typical, the deflection and instantly it was in. There was not much he could do with either goal, so I’m pleased.”

“I think a fair point, on play,” the former England international said in his post-match media conference. “The first half I think we were the better team. I know they had some good chances, we gifted them a few, but I think our work off the ball and some of it on it was good. To play with that personality. But that second half they had the opportunity of course late in the game. I think it evened itself out. I am pleased with a point.”
