The Blues have lost the EFL Cup final in a match that Chelsea was the better side today, but Manchester City won over Chelsea in the penalty shootout. However, the news tonight isn’t about Chelsea’s loss, but about what will happen after it.
The main scene today was Chelsea and Spain’s goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalagam where the young goalkeeper refused to get substituted for Willy Caballero.
Kepa Arrizabalaga collapsed on the pitch a few minutes before the final whistle of the extra time, and Maurizio Sarri ordered a substitution for Kepa Arrizabalaga where the Argentinian goalkeeper, Willy Caballero, was going to replace him. However, Kepa refused to go off and Maurizio Sarri went crazy on the sideline.
Many football pundits say that this could be Kepa Arrizabalaga’s last match for Chelsea, or Maurizio Sarri’s last match for Chelsea, where the Italian manager could be resigning tonight after Kepa’s incident.
Chelsea won’t be able to sign a new goalkeeper until the summer of 2020, which means that if Sarri continues, he has to work with Kepa Arrizabalaga. However, to prove his leadership and control over the dressing room in the future, Sarri could be resigning.
Stay tuned for the latest news after the match
