- Kepa Arrizabalaga has explained that he learnt from Wembley failure against Man City
- The Chelsea goalie made this known after helping the Blues to reach Europa League final
- He was superb on Thursday night, May 9, saving two Eintracht Frankfurt penalties
Chelsea goalie Kepa Arrizabalaga has stated that he learnt from his Wembley failure against Manchester City after steering the Blues to the final of the Europa League.
In February this year, the 24-year-old Spanish goalkeeper was the villain in the Blues' defeat against Manchester City following his refusal to be subbed.
But he was the hero on Thursday night, May 9, saving two Eintracht Frankfurt penalties in the shootout which powered Chelsea to Europa League final.
Kepa held his nerve to stay down the middle and block Martin Hinteregger's strike with his legs in bizarre fashion.
"Wembley is in the past and I learnt from it. I said I was sorry but we always keep moving forward.
"We always prepare for the penalty shooters before each game and today we are lucky.
"Penalties are down to luck. Today we won and in the Carabao Cup final we lost, but this is football. Today was really good and we played against a very difficult team and we are very happy to get to the final.
"Our season was a little bit difficult but we have reached two finals and we have qualified for the Champions League so I think it's a good season. Now we will have a strong London derby with Arsenal in Baku,'' he said according to UK Sun.

It was revealed that the Chelsea first choice goalkeeper also faced off with second choice Willy Caballero after the game as he said he is better than the Argentine.
Arrizabalaga reportedly told Willy Caballero in the dressing room that he was better than him at Wembley and that was why he refused to be substituted towards the end of the extra time.
