Maurizio Sarri speaks on Kepas position ahead of Tottenham game

Sarri unsure whether Kepa will start against Spurs

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has said that he has no concerns with goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga despite the unexpected incident during the League Cup final against Manchester City last weekend.

The Spain international was involved in an altercation with the manager during the closing stages of added extra-time after he refused to get substituted before the penalty shoot-out.

However, following the game, Sarri revealed that there was a big misunderstanding which led to the incident and the same statement was repeated by the goalkeeper himself.

Despite this, Sarri has refused to confirm whether the shot-stopper may feature against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night - with the decision expected to be made by the existing players and the hierarchy.

“I have to decide, maybe yes, maybe not. It will be a decision for the group. For all the players," he was quoted as saying by Sky Sports ahead of the London derby.

Chelsea are currently three points behind the top four with a game in hand and the upcoming game against Spurs could be crucial to their prospects of staying within contention for the Champions League spots.
