Tim Howard makes honest verdict on Casemiro’s goal against Chelsea
Former Manchester United goalkeeper Tim Howard has slammed Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga for failing to keep out Casemiro’s header in their Premier League 1-1 draw on Saturday.
Chelsea thought they had taken the whole three points after Jorginho scored from the spot with just three minutes left.
But Casemiro rose to the occasion, latching onto Luke Shaw’s cross with a fine looping header.
While Kepa managed to get a hand to it, the ball crossed the line before the Spain international could scramble it away.
And Howard, a former USA international who spent three seasons at Manchester United before a successful spell at Everton, insists the Chelsea goalkeeper should have done better with the effort.
“Credit Casemiro, it’s a good looping header. But I must say Kepa gets a full hand to the ball. He should be keeping that out, "Howard said on NBC Sports.
“He should be steering that around the post. That would’ve been a really good save and that is a tight, tight call.”
