All the talk ahead of Chelsea vs Spurs was whether Kepa Arrizabalaga would be dropped or not.
The Spanish goalkeeper refused to be substituted on Sunday during Chelsea’s Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City on penalties.
An hour before kick-off, we discovered that he was indeed to be replaced by Willy Caballero.
But during the 90 minutes at Stamford Bridge, Caballero did very little.
That’s because Spurs failed to have a single shot on target as Chelsea bounced back with a 2-0 victory.

- Kane faces 3-match ban for 'headbutt'
The London derby was feisty as you’d expect with numerous clashes between players - although only Harry Kane and David Luiz picked up yellow cards for their flare-up in injury-time.
Kane is also accused of aiming an out-of-nature headbutt at Cesar Azpilicueta during Spurs’ defeat.
It was just an example of the Spurs players losing their composure after their second loss in the Premier League in the space of four days.
And there was another example of just that in injury-time at the end of the match.
Pedro was looking to receive a throw-in from Azpilicueta as Danny Rose tried to mark him.
But Rose wasn’t having any of Pedro’s attempts to get in front of him and looked fuming.
Meanwhile, the scorer of Chelsea’s first goal was loving it.

Take a look:
The Spurs players will have to regain their composure ahead of Saturday’s north London derby with Arsenal.
A third consecutive defeat will suddenly leave Pochettino’s side looking over their shoulders and with a battle just to finish in the top-four.
No wonder their players are starting to lose their heads.News Now - Sport News
