‘Making a statement is more important than our top 4 hopes’ – These Chelsea fans react to Sarri dropping Kepa for crucial clash vs Tottenham

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has dropped goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga for tonight’s clash vs Tottenham, the Spaniard caused controversy with his antics in the Carabao Cup final.

The Blues are currently sitting in sixth place and they need a win tonight against third placed Spurs if they are to stay in the race to finish in the top four and secure their qualification for the Champions League next season.

There are four changes for Sarri’s side tonight, fans will be focused on the fact that Willy Caballero comes into the side after Kepa’s antics on the weekend.

Other changes include left-back Marcos Alonso coming into the team for Emerson, Mateo Kovacic entering the fray in the place of Ross Barkley. January loan signing Gonzalo Higuain has been called into action in the place of Willian.

Higuain will be looking to notch himself a goal tonight and prove that he’s one of the best strikers in the world. Higuain will certainly have one eye on what Harry Kane is up to on the other end of the pitch.
