Kepa Arrizabalaga's public bust-up with Maurizio Sarri at Wembley last Sunday sent Chelsea fans into meltdown It overshadowed their Carabao Cup final performance which despite the loss, was far better than what we've seen in recent weeks In fact, the situation even took over most of the talk ahead of Wednesday's London derby between Chelsea and Tottenham Before the game, Sarri hinted that he had a key decision to make over who to start in goal He made the brave choice to drop Kepa and instead it was Willy Caballero who started between the sticks at Stamford Bridge Some fans were predicting that defeat to Spurs would see the Italian sacked and therefore, leaving his first choice keeper on the bench could have seriously backfired But it didn'tChelsea ran out 2-0 winners thanks to Pedro's second-half finish and a rather bizarre own goal from Kieran Trippier After a victory that keeps their top four hopes alive, Kepa's public spat with his coach suddenly does not look so bad Still, that did not stop the questions coming at full-time and one of those came to Caballero, who was asked to lift the lid on how he felt about playing instead of the club's number one When the boss confirmed the team I was surprised
