Chelsea’s Maurizio Sarri Says Dropping Kepa Arrizabalaga Against Spurs Was a One Off

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has said dropping goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga for Wednesday night’s clash with Spurs was a one-off, and the Spaniard will remain as the Blues’ first-choice shot-stopper.

The £70 million goalie was caught in the spotlight during Sunday’s Carabao Cup final, as he appeared to refuse to be substituted by Sarri after going down injured with cramp during extra-time.

The Italian coach insisted the bizarre moment was nothing more than a misunderstanding, but Argentine Willy Caballero was chosen between the sticks for this evening’s 2-0 victory over London rivals Spurs.

However,it turns out Kepa shouldn’t be too worried, with Sarri admitting he’ll be back in goals soon when speaking to the media afterwards:

Chelsea play Fulham on Sunday as they continue their attempts to secure a Champions League place for next season, and Sarri attempts to keep his job, but who would you start in goals this weekend, and going forward?
