It was always going to be interesting to see how Chelsea decided to replace Kepa this season, but plucking a member of the backroom staff out of retirement didn’t seem to be high on the list of possibilities.
It still looks like Edouard Mendy will be the first choice for now, but everyone was shocked as Petr Cech was listed as a member of the playing squad going into the season.
Some footage has emerged of him in training, and he’s still looking pretty sharp:

Obviously nobody wants anything to happen to Mendy, but it will be fascinating to see who gets the nod if he’s not available for a game at some point.
