EPL: Sarri reveals when Kepa Arrizabalaga will make Chelsea debut


Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri has revealed when new signing, Kepa Arrizabalaga will make his debut for the club.

Arrizabalaga joined the Blues from Athletic Bilboa for a world-record £71million.

The goalkeeper replaced former Chelsea first choice shot-stopper, Thibaut Courtois, who signed for Real Madrid in a £35million deal on Thursday.

British outlet, Metro is reporting that Sarri said he can’t tell if Arrizabalaga will start for Chelsea against Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon.

Sarri said, “I don’t know if Kepa will start against Huddersfield.

“He is in the players’ list, and then I will decide tomorrow.”

He added, “I want to know the players and the man and when my idea is clear I will make the decision.”

Sarri took over from fellow Italian, Antonio Conte, who left the West London club having won the Premier League and FA Cup, but fell short in the League standings last season.
