The Spaniard has continued to impress Thomas Tuchel whenever he's called upon as he aims to retain his place in Chelsea's starting lineup.
Meanwhile, due to Mendy's injury Kepa has been given the nod by Thomas Tuchel in the last two games of Chelsea in which they came out victorious.
However, according to ESPN, Kepa has now broken the record of becoming the goalkeeper with the highest saves (7) in the penalty shoot-out in Chelsea's history.

The record was formerly held by Chelsea legend, Peter Cech who had six saves in the penalty shootout.
Nevertheless, Kepa will be looking on to break more records as the season progresses.
