EPL: Why Kepa is now Chelsea’s first-choice goalkeeper ahead of Mendy – Potter
Potter has not selected Mendy since he replaced Thomas Tuchel.
Kepa had initially lost his position to the Senegal international.
However, Mendy got injured several matches into the 2022/2023 season and Kepa then got his chance.
“It is better to let football decide,” Potter answered when asked the question regarding the two keepers and who is his first choice.
“Kepa has done really well. He has been supported fantastically by [Mendy] and [Marcus Bettinelli]. They provide good competition.
“Kepa’s form is really pleasing for everybody, especially him, so it’s nice we have competition in that area. That’s how you get players better.”
