Kepa Arrizabalaga has been the team’s first choice goalkeeper in the absence of Thibaut Courtois, since signing on loan from Chelsea.

Following Kepa’s recent injury, Andriy Lunin has done very well in the absence of the Spaniard, keeping clean sheets for fun – the Ukrainian has managed to keep three clean sheets from five outings.

Carlo Ancelotti has however revealed that Kepa will continue as his first choice when he returns from injury.

Amid calls for Lunin to maintain his place on the back of Kepa’s upcoming return, Ancelotti said: “Lunin has been ready but Kepa will be back for Granada and if he’s ok he will play.”
