Chelsea would have probably been closer to the top of the table had they shown more consistency, believes Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Chelsea’s 3-2 defeat against West Ham on Wednesday night saw them drop all three points for the first time since the return of football and for the 10th time overall in this Premier League season.
Nonetheless, they are on course to secure Champions League football. Having knocked Leicester City out earlier in quarterfinals, they are also a strong candidate to win the FA Cup this season.
Frank Lampard has managed to do a tremendous job in quickly steering the team back in the right direction after it was believed that it would take a while for Chelsea to overcome the loss of Eden Hazard, more so after being hit with a transfer ban.
Kepa Arrizabalaga feels there is still much room for improvement in his side’s performances but acknowledges that they indeed have made good progress this season.
“From the team point of view, we’ve had some good moments as a group but also some moments where things have not gone quite as well as we’d hoped. And that’s probably why we’re sitting in fourth place,” Kepa said on the official club website.
“If we had managed to be more consistent and carry on the same form that we’ve shown in a decent amount of games, we probably would have been a little bit higher up the table.”
