Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri says goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has now served his time after he sat out the 2-0 victory over Tottenham. Kepa’s refusal to be substituted against Manchester City at the weekend, resulted in the world’s most expensive goalkeeper dropping to the bench in Wednesday’s win over Spurs.
Willy Caballero started and kept a clean sheet as a strike by Pedro and an own goal from Kieran Trippier earned the Blues a crucial three points. “I think it was the right decision,” Sarri said. “Kepa made a big mistake, he paid with the club and then he had to pay with the team. Now I think we have to stop.

Kepa from tomorrow will be with us.” Meanwhile, Sarri does not expect the win to end questions over his future, but a favourable run of fixtures follows, beginning at Fulham on Sunday. “I spoke with the club two, three times in the last days. The problem wasn’t so big,” Sarri added. “It’s not a big problem for me. In this job you are under pressure every week, if you’re lucky every six months. It’s normal. “If you lose two matches, three matches in a row you’re under pressure. I think it’s normal for every coach, maybe something more in Chelsea.”
