Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri insists his row with Kepa Arrizabalaga is over.

The Italian was incensed after his goalkeeper refused to be substituted in the Blues’ Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City last weekend.

Subsequently, Kepa was fined a week’s wages and watched from the bench as Chelsea secured a midweek win over Tottenham.

But he was restored to the starting 11 at Fulham on Sunday and made a string of fine saves in a 2-1 victory to help maintain Chelsea’s top-four push.

Sarri told talkSPORT: “Kepa made a mistake and then there was the reaction from the club, there was a reaction from the technical staff so after this, the situation is closed.


“So I think it was normal to close this situation and put Kepa in the starting 11.

“He’s a man, he understood the mistake so I’m really very happy with his performance.”
