Statistics have shown that ​​Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has the worst save percentage record amongst all the ​Premier League goalkeepers, and is ranked 127th out of 132 goalkeepers in the whole of Europe.


The Chelsea No1, who has made 84 appearances for the Blues since joining in 2018, has failed to establish himself as one of the very best in England, and ​has kept only five clean sheets this season.


When ranking the Premier League’s best goalkeepers, many tend to put Kepa among the top 5; normally ahead of north London goalkeepers Bernd Leno and Hugo Lloris, and behind Brazilian duo Alisson and Ederson, as well as Spanish counterpart David de Gea.


But the fact is, while ​Arsenal tend to concede far more shots than Chelsea, the two keepers have conceded the same number of goals this season, despite Leno facing 31 more shots on target. This, in turn, means that Leno’s save success rate stands at an impressive 73.61%, while Kepa’s lingers at mediocrity – 53.66%. (stats via ​transfermrkt.co.uk).



Last night, after ​Newcastle's injury-time winner by Isaac Hayden, ​UtdArena posted on Twitter: "55.4% — Kepa Arrizabalaga has the worst save percentage of any keeper in the Premier League.


"127th — Out of 132 keepers from Europe's top seven leagues Kepa ranks 127th in save percentage. £72m."


The 25-year-old Spaniard's attitude was questioned last season when he refused to be substituted in the League Cup final, leaving then-manager Maurizio Sarri fuming. Kepa's performances have been steadily declining this season with Chelsea having conceded 30 goals in 23 games, just in the Premier League.
