Chelsea winger Pedro insists the squad are united under Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri after Kepa Arrizabalaga was dropped for the 2-0 win over Tottenham on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge.

Kepa paid the price for his refusal to be substituted against Manchester City by dropping to the bench for the game against Tottenham.

Pedro, who scored in the win against Tottenham, insisted the Chelsea players are united despite the incident that happened against Manchester City.

Pedro told ESPN: “There has been a lot of talk this week and that always destabilises (things) a little, but the truth is that in the dressing room we are together, as a great team.

“We have not given much importance to everything that has been talked about and in the end that is the most important thing.

“We are focused on doing well in every game to get the three points, because from here to the end of the season they will be all finals and we will try to fight to be in the top four.

“This was a great match for us to gain confidence and stay there (in the fight for the top four).

“We have all talked to each other in the dressing room. We’ve also talked to Willy and we’ve talked to the coach.

“The truth is that we have solved all the problems and I think it has been a [small] incident rather than a serious problem.

“It always serves to learn. We are with Kepa, with Willy and with the manager.

“This is the path that we have to follow. Now we need to get ready very well for the match against Fulham because it is another final.”
