Graeme Souness has urged Chelsea to replace under-fire Kepa Arrizabalaga with Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak.

The Slovenian put in a dominant performance to send Jurgen Klopp’s reigning champions Liverpool crashing out of the Champions League.

Discussing him in the RTE television studio, the former Liverpool captain, 66, said: ‘‘Do we know how old he is? 27? There you go Chelsea.

”Chelsea are looking for a goalkeeper. He’s been a top man for a long time.”

He was not the only one to hail Oblak’s performance.

Ex-Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn added: ‘‘It was a tale of two goalkeepers. Oblak was absolutely superb, he was making saves all over and was impossible to breach at times.

”Liverpool will look back at this and say, ”How did these not go in?!”, but you still felt even after that that it was going to come. It wasn’t perfect defending by any stretch, it was down to their keeper who was really keeping it out.”
