Frank Lampard has told Kepa Arrizabalaga that being dropped is something that every player has to experience and that he must use the experience to become stronger.

Lampard was one of the first names on the Chelsea teamsheet for the majority of his time as a player at the club, but learnt exactly how it feels to be dropped as one of the big names as his career reached the twilight years and the Chelsea boss says if Kepa shows the right reaction it will help him grow as a player.

The Chelsea manager made the surprise call to bench the world's most expensive goalkeeper in place of 38-year-old Willy Caballero for their draw with Leicester before the winter break.

"That was just my story, everybody is slightly different , but with the competition in squads now I do think you have to be always aware that if your standards drop or if the manager chooses for whatever reason, and that can happen, and handle it in the right way.

"That is the reality of life, of football, of our careers," said Lampard - who had decided before the weekend whether Kepa would earn his place back or not when Manchester United visit Stamford Bridge on Monday.

Kepa had been under increasing pressure after a string of poor performances as Chelsea's No.1.

But then you have to be a teammate, and you have to be part of the club and you have to accept it, and sometimes you have to find another way, and understand that things are slightly different.
