Chelsea star Eden Hazard has revealed that the club's senior players had words with Kepa Arrizabalaga after the goalkeeper's refusal to be substituted during Sunday’s Carabao Cup Final.
The Spanish goalkeeper was fined a week's wages after appearing to disobey manager Maurizio Sarri in declining to come off for Willy Caballero at Wembley.
He was also dropped for Wednesday's 2-0 victory over London rivals Tottenham at Stamford Bridge, Caballero taking his place.

And team-mate Hazard has admitted that he and some of his team-mates spoke to Arrizabalaga about his actions while insisting the whole squad is now moving past the fiasco.
Speaking to RMC, the Belgian forward said: 'It's a fact of play in a final. We explained ourselves, explained to him with the club, with the players, with the coach, with Willy Caballero too.
'He knows very well that he made a mistake and, here we are, we will get over that. He has the potential to become one of the best in the world.'
Arrizabalaga was heckled and booed by sections of the Blues support at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday
