Lampard Defends Werner And Kepa After Errors

Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard has defended misfiring forward Timo Werner and goalie, Kepa Arrizabalaga 

Kepa made an error and Timo Werner missed a penalty in a 3-1 win over Luton Town, but Frank Lampard backed both players.

Frank Lampard however spared Kepa Arrizabalaga from criticism and said he has no doubt Timo Werner will come good after Chelsea’s unconvincing FA Cup win over Luton Town.

Tammy Abraham’s hat-trick was ultimately enough for Chelsea to overcome Championship side Luton 3-1 on Sunday and take their place in the fifth round.

A mistake at 2-0 up from goalkeeper Kepa – who has been demoted to second choice following Edouard Mendy’s arrival at Stamford Bridge – enabled Jordan Clark to pull one back for Luton.

However, Kepa made amends with a fine save from Harry Cornick early in the second half, with Abraham’s tap-in then rounding off the win.

Werner, who has scored just once in 16 games across all competitions, missed a late penalty as his frustrating run in front of goal continued.
