“Man of the match” Some Chelsea fans single out one player for first half heroics


“Man of the match” Some Chelsea fans single out one player for first half heroics

Chelsea being held by Brentford

A much changed Chelsea are currently being held to a 0-0 stalemate by Brentford at half time, with the Blues very much on the back foot.

Thomas Tuchel opted for a very different line up to his Premier League side, in part due to injury and illness, and handed debuts to three Cobham grauates, Harvey Vale, Jake Soonup Bell and Xavi Simmons.

However, it is the home team that have been on top, having come close on several occasions as they seek a semi-final spot, and a potential Wembley trip for the second season running.

Praise rolls in for Kepa

During the first half, there was one man that Chelsea fans singled out for particular praise, reserve shot-stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who has found himself largely second fiddle to Edouard Mendy this season.

However, he has pulled off some key saves to keep them in the tie, and the Chelsea fans have not let that go unnoticed.

Can the Spaniard challenge Mendy for the first team spot?
