Who would be a goalkeeper, eh?

There are undoubtedly great moments for keepers when they are the heroes but there are also some hugely humiliating days ahead.

And sometimes they can be through no fault of your own.

Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga conceded a goal in their Champions League match against Ajax in an extremely unfortunate way.

Hakim Ziyech’s menacing cross from the right caused all sorts of problems for the Spaniard before striking the post.

However, the ball ended up dropping into the net as it rebounded off Kepa’s face after hitting the upright to put Ajax 3-1 up.

Below you can see the video that will have every fan other than Chelsea fans laughing their heads off.

It got worse for the Blues as they found themselves 4-1 down through a goal from Donny van de Beek ten minutes into the second half.

However, Frank Lampard’s men showed great character to battle to a 4-4 draw against the Dutch side, who were reduced to nine men.

Cesar Azpilicueta pulled one back on 63 minutes and Daley Blind got yellow carded for a second time after a challenge on Tammy Abraham.

Chelsea were then awarded a penalty with Joel Veltman handling the ball inside the box, who was then given his marching orders.

Jorginho stuck away the spot-kick and the Blues completed the comeback moments later when Reece James smashed in a loose ball.

Azpilicueta thought he’d made it 5-4 but his goal was disallowed by VAR as Abraham handled an effort by Jorginho just before the captain smashed the ball in.

The Premier League side are second in Group H, level on points with leaders Ajax and third-placed Valencia, who Chelsea go to on matchday five.
