According to reports, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel dismissed defender Antonio Rudiger from training yesterday after the German clashed with goalkeeper Kepa Arizzabalaga.


Tuchel suffered his first loss as Chelsea manager against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. The German tactician, who called for calm after the shock defeat, had to intervene and stop things from boiling over between Rudiger and Kepa on the training ground. Rudiger was eventually sent out of the training session 5 minutes early.

Thomas Tuchel sent Antonio Rudiger in from training on Sunday after the defender was involved in a bust-up with Kepa Arrizabalaga less than 24 hours after the Chelsea head coach had warned his players not to lose their heads following their 5-2 loss to West Brom.

Marcos Alonso has played down the training ground bust-up between Chelsea teammates Antonio Rudiger and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

“These are things that happen,” Alonso said.

“This shows the level of competition there is in the team, the hunger we saw on training ground – that’s good for the team. Of course, even before training finished it was all good.

“[It is] nothing new, it has always happened, it will still happen and the thing we need to take is take the positves and move on and get ready for the next game.”

Chelsea are still fourth in the Premier League table and Thomas Tuchel will have to ensure that his squad remains focused ahead of a crucial run of fixtures.
