This season, Robert Sanchez has cemented himself as Chelsea’s first-choice custodian in the starting lineup.
According to a story from The Evening Standard, such is the case.
They assert that the 25-year-old Robert Sanchez will serve as Mauricio Pochettino’s Blues team’s primary goalie for the duration of this season.
It is stated that they have decided not to continue their pursuit of a marquee custodian signing for the remainder of the window. Instead, they’ve allocated £20 million to find a replacement gloveman to back up Sanchez.
According to the source, plans had been revised by Kepa Arrizabalaga’s loan move to Real Madrid when Sanchez was originally acquired from Brighton this summer to serve as competition between the pipes.
Chelsea paid Brighton £ 25 million (Sky Sports) for Sanchez at the start of the month, which we hope will grow into a bargain fee over time.
In his first appearance, the Spanish custodian held Liverpool to a 1-1 Premier League draw on Sunday.
He admitted to Stadium Astro that he had not anticipated joining Chelsea so soon. However, the 25-year-old at Stamford Bridge now has access to this tremendous chance.
The Pochettino XI at Chelsea will be revealed in the upcoming games, but one early fact is that Sanchez will start in goal.
Sanchez must start strong and display some of his best form if the Blues are to return to the top of the table this season.
In fairness, the backline does look like one of the stronger areas of the squad. The question marks will continue over the attack scoring goals, though.
