Kepa pulls off save of the season to deny Virgil van Dijk in Super Cup

Chelsea stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga pulled off a sensational save to deny Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk during the Super Cup in Istanbul.

The Blues took a deserved lead into the break after Olivier Giroud finished off Christian Pulisic’s neat through ball.

Liverpool were surpisingly below-par in the first half but they refound themselves after the break and quickly levelled through Sadio Mane.

It led to a sustained period of pressure from Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp’s men looked to have taken the lead when Kepa’s brilliant save from Mohamed Salah fell to Van Dijk .

Van Dijk took a nasty knock from Kurt Zouma after powering a shot at the target but the pain of that was no competition for the fact that his effort did not go in.

The game was forced to extra-time after neither side could provide a winner in normal time.
