Chelsea have announced their official lineup for tonight’s London derby against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
The Blues have gone through a mixed bag of performances since the turn of the year but they are still within reach of the top four with a three-point deficit with a game in hand.
Prior to the game, Maurizio Sarri had refused to give a clear sight on whether Kepa Arrizabalaga could be selected from the off after his refusal to get substituted during the dying stages of the League Cup final defeat.
However, with the lineups out, it has been revealed that the Spaniard has indeed been dropped with Sarri confirming that the decision was made by him personally to send a message to the group
Aside from Kepa, three more players in Ross Barkley, Willian and Emerson have been replaced from the lineups with Mateo Kovacic, Gonzalo Higuain and Marcos Alonso taking their places respectively.
