More from Sarri: "I think Willy Caballero is ready, he has a very good experience. We must not worry about him. Mauricio Pochettino also addresses BT Sport: "Jan Vertonghen felt a problem at his hip yesterday. We hope this is not a big problem and that it may be available for the next game. " And finally a little bit of Harry Kane: "It's a London derby. We have had great battles against Chelsea this season and in recent years. So it will be the same tonight. Obviously, both teams will want to bounce back from the weekend, so it's up to us to play our style and try to get all three points. "
"There are consequences." We should not be particularly surprised that Sarri abandoned Kepa. Here it is yesterday, letting out a fairly obvious clue.
Here, both Chelsea goalies attend their pre-game warm-up. Everyone hears well! There is beauty.
Maurizio Sarri, always straight to the point, explains his decision to drop Kepa. "It's a choice – it's a message to my group – that we are a group and not 25 players – it's my choice."
So here is our answer: Maurizio Sarri threw Kepa Arrizabalaga, who has a budget of £ 71 million, on the bench. This is the shameless insubordination penalty for the goalkeeper at Wembley towards the end of the League Cup final against Manchester City. Willy Caballero, expert of the repressed penalties, takes his place … finally. This is one of four changes made by Chelsea. Marcos Alonso, Mateo Kovacic and Gonzalo Higuain take the places of Emerson, Ross Barkley and Willian.
The Spurs make four changes to the XI, which stopped at Burnley on Saturday. Keiran Trippier, Davison Sanchez, Ben Davies and Erik Lamela take over; Danny Rose, Juan Foyth, Serge Aurier and Jan Vertonghen make their way.
Chelsea: Caballero, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso, Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Pedro, Higuain, Hazard.
Subs: Arrizabalaga, Barkley, Loftus-Cheek, Giroud, Hudson-Odoi, Willian, Christensen.
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Trippier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies, Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen, Lamela, Son, Kane.
Subs: Rose, Wanyama, Llorente, Foyth, Gazzaniga, Aurier, Lucas Moura.
Arbitrator: Andre Marriner (West Midlands).
Will Tottenham reduce the gap between Liverpool and Manchester City? Will they record two consecutive league victories at Stamford Bridge after taking 28 years to wait for their victory here last year? Can they complete a brace against Chelsea for the first time since 1971? Chelsea will he recover from the final misery of the League Cup to regain his place in the top four? Will it sink into a wild fight, as was the case during the Spurs exhaustion in 2016?
Questions, questions. To be honest, the only one who really worries a lot is this: will Maurizio Sarri choose the stubborn goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga after his theatrical performance at Wembley last Sunday? We will know it soon! The teams to come, after which … let's go!
