Chelsea head coach has explained the reason behind dropping his number one goalkeeper, Arrizabalaga Kepa, who has been in poor form this season.

Kepa lost his starting position to Willy Caballero in Chelsea's last two games. Lampard says it was a difficult decision but one that is backed by the club.

"That fills a lot of headlines and articles," Lampard said.

"I am absolutely together with the board. We want the best. I am paid to make decisions. It is a decision recently where, as I have mentioned before, with form that I have to consider the goalkeeping position as well as all positions. Recently it has just changed, it is nothing final.

“The keepers union have to stick together and Kepa has been great in his support of Willy in this moment. All he needs to do is train and show great attitude, like I demand of all my players. Things can obviously change.

“All I want is the best for the team, it is nothing on one individual position.”

Caballero is likely to continue in goal when Chelsea host Tottenham Hotspur in tomorrow's early kickoff.
