Under-fire Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga insisted Sunday that he did not stage a League Cup final mutiny against coach Maurizio Sarri after refusing to be substituted.

"At no time has it been my intention to disobey the coach or any of his decisions," Kepa said on Twitter.

"I think everything has been misunderstood in the heat of the final part of the match. My intention was to express that I was in a good position to continue."

Chelsea eventually lost 4-3 on penalties after a goalless draw.
