Top source says Enzo Maresca has already chosen his number one goalkeeper at Chelsea

One top source has claimed that new Chelsea head coach Enzo Maresca has already chosen his number one goalkeeper at Chelsea for next season and beyond.

Surprisingly it doesn’t look like Chelsea are at the moment looking to sign a new goalkeeper, which for me and many other Chelsea fans out there, would be a huge mistake.

EXCLUSIVE! Chelsea now keen on signing versatile Bayern Munich attacker this summer! 👀

Djordje Petrovic is solid but I’m unconvinced with him playing out from the back. Robert Sanchez can be good but also proved last season that he is inconsistent and also liable with the ball at his feet.

If Chelsea really want to push on this season and challenge at the very top again, then a new goalkeeper should really be deemed as one of the most important positions to sign in.

However, instead of doing that, so far anyway, it looks like Maresca is happy to continue with what he has already.

Maresca picks Sanchez

Sanchez to get his number one spot back?

According to Matt Law of The Telegraph, it is anticipated that Robert Sánchez will start as Enzo Maresca’s first-choice goalkeeper and he will be expected to perform a similar role to that of Ederson at City and the one Mads Hermansen mastered at Leicester last season.

Personally, I don’t think this is something that is nailed on for the season and my hope is that Maresca and Chelsea will go into pre-season using Sanchez and then quickly realising that he can not be the ball-playing goalkeeper that they want for Maresca’s style of football, and then they dip back into the market late on in the window.

I mean, Sanchez even lost his number one spot to Petrovic last season and now he’s going to come back in and be number one again? Come off it!

It will be interesting to now see what happens with the goalkeeper position.

  1. How can he pick his No 1 keeper now , he’s not seen any player in pre-season yet , he also has Keppa returning , & Bettinelli .

  2. Hell with your Sanchez. Petrovic has already proven himself as a decent shot stopper. If he needs to be more confident with the ball at his feet we got coaches to help him do that. But if the new gaffer is going with Sanchez again i’d rather go back and watch my old team Milan in the Serie A because they have one of the best around in the business.

  3. Sanchez what, If he don’t trust Petrovic, let him look for another keeper, because Sanchez is not reliable

  4. What, Sanchez is a wavering minded keeper. If He plays, expect to concedes more than last season. He should rather change his plans about him. Because the pains Robert Sanchez will cause will be unbearable to fans.

  5. Ohoooo but he should rather play petrovic instead sanchezi because petrovic had already provened us most of the fans out, therefore petrovic is our best than sanchezi

  6. After Sanchez being subject to injury. He had never impressed but when Petrovic showed to us that he might have a brighter future. So I prefer Petrovic to Sanchez
