1. Anticipation. Chelsea Kepa Arizabalaga is the best in the world when it comes down to penalty shootouts. The Spanish goalkeeper has managed to work on his penalty saving ability over the years and now, he is undoubtedly the best when it comes down to penalty in the Premier league.
Chelsea has a very large squad this season, with many talented players at the coach's disposal.

Because of the intense competition for playing time on the field, the following players will have a difficult time making an impact for the team this season:

Edouard Mendy has undoubtedly turned to an important personality in the Chelsea first team squad. His arrival from Stade Rennes to Chelsea was one of best things that ever happened to Chelsea.

That will end in February, which means Kepa will be Chelsea goalkeeper for that month. Mendy has shown how good he is and he has been hailed by a lot of people to be the best goalkeeper in the world.
Mendy won the Champions League last season. He made his name by becoming the first African goalkeeper to win the trophy, but the most surprising thing was that he was not nominated for the Ballon d'Or award. Donnarumma was put on the list ahead of him because he won the UEFA Euros 2020.
Chelsea will need a win against Malmo FF in today's Champions League game to keep their hopes of reaching the round of 16 alive. The Blues' most recent UCL match ended in a 1-0 defeat to Juventus. Despite outplaying Juventus, Chelsea was unable to convert their chances and were punished as a result.
Chelsea will continue the defence of their UEFA Champions League trophy when they welcome Swedish champions Malmo to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night. The Blues will want to bounce back from their narrow defeat to Juventus last time out and are expected to do so against a Malmo side that are considered as the weakest team in group H.
