Maurizio Sarri unsure about Kepa's return to Chelsea team

Former Chelsea striker Carlton Cole has insisted that Blues boss Maurizio Sarri let Kepa Arrizabalaga "get off lightly" following the controversial incident in the Carabao Cup final last weekend.

Another of Sarri's biggest selection decisions for the win over Spurs was restoring Marcos Alonso to the Chelsea defence only a day after admitting that Emerson Palmieri - who impressed against City at Wembley - was in better form.

Caballero may have not got the appearance that he was hoping for, but it appears likely that he will get another year as a Chelsea player.

'The target of my club is to return in the Champions League.

The Spaniard was fined a week's wages for his actions and dropped to the bench on Wednesday, with Willy Caballero filling in during the 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur. I think that he can do better. "So I can believe that he has no problem to play under pressure".

Alonso repaid his head coach's faith with his most solid performance in several months, and Sarri said he expects even his best players to go through hard moments.

Whether Sarri feels compelled to recall Kepa after his slap on the wrist is the key question hanging over Chelsea as they make the short trip to take on struggling Fulham at Craven Cottage. He played very well in the last match, better in the second half than in the first.

"He came in and had open arms with me in the sense of helping and I'd like to think I helped him at times". You risk arriving at this moment of the season really very exhausted, more mentally than physically.

'I think that in the first 30 minutes, we understood why Jorginho is very important for our play, ' he said after Chelsea booked their place in the Europa League last 16. "We need to change three or four players". For him, it's very important to finish the match in that way.

"I don't really have many friends, but yesterday the phone was pinging away", Parker said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

"Now I am in the first season in England, and I started to understand some things, not everything at the moment, so now I realise that here it [takes] longer, more hard".
