Crouch Faults Kepa For Fulham’s Second Goal

Crouch Faults Kepa For Fulham’s Second Goal

Former England striker, Peter Crouch, believes that Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is to blame for Fulham’s second goal in their Premier League clash on Thursday.

Chelsea lost 2-1 to Fulham at Craven Cottage on January 12.

Willian scored the first goal of the game in the 25th minute and Kalidou Koulibaly equalised for Chelsea in the 47th minute.

Carlo Vinicius’ header sealed the win for Fulham in the 73rd minute of the encounter.

Crouch insists that Kepa should have stayed on his line to stop Vinicius’ header.

“It’s a massive error from Kepa,” Crouch told BT Sport as quoted by Daily Mail

“If he stays on his line it’s such a difficult header (for Vinicius), bit he’s given him an open goal. Even if Kepa makes a decision to come out, you’ve got to come all the way.”

Kepa has made 10 Premier League appearances this season for Chelsea.

Chelsea are currently placed 10th in the Premier League with 25 points after 18 games.

The Blues face Crystal Palace next on Sunday January 15 at Stamford Bridge.
