Chelsea was on their way on to becoming a stable and calm football club after the row between club management and Antonio Conte and they were transitioning smoothly until the EFL cup final against Manchester City. Even though Maurizio Sarri, the current manager and successor of Antonio Conte was facing severe criticism over the continuous series of failures in performances and the overall distortion in the team spirit, fans were hopeful that a change might be on its way. But in the extra time of the Carabao cup final, the football world witnessed a row which silently confirmed that all is not going well in the dressing room and effectively, inside the club.
Chelsea lost the penalty session 3-4 to Manchester City with Kepa Arrizabalaga not managing to save even one shot. Though it can technically be said that Chelsea lost the match due to Jorginho missing to convert his penalty, most people would point the fingers at Kepa Arrizabalaga as the cause of defeat. The whole clash was shot down by Sarri in his post-match interview and the player is reportedly fined a week of his wages for the misconduct.
