There was plenty drama in extra-time of the Carabao Cup final between Chelsea and Manchester City as Chelsea goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga refused to be substituted.
Coach Maurizio Sarri wanted to remove Kepa and bring on penalty expert Willy Caballero as the game headed to a penalty shootout.
But the Chelsea record-signing had other ideas as he refused to come off much to the frustration of the Chelsea coach and fans.
This will always be remembered, Kepa Arrizabalaga for you people. Disrespectful towards the club, manager, staff, players and the fans. 🐸☕️ pic.twitter.com/ZBKvm0JDgO

Sarri was furious as Kepa, who cost £71.6m in the summer, waved his finger and told the Italian no – meaning he was in no mood to come-off.
The Chelsea manager was so furious that he had a word with the coach and stormed off, heading out of the stadium before changing his mind and heading back to see his team complete extra-time and move to penalties.
To make matters worse, Kepa saved just one penalty as Manchester City lifted the Carabao Cup.
The Spanish stopper had a brilliant chance to save Sergio Aguero’s penalty but completely fluffed it, failing to get a hand to the ball when it was right there.
He would go on to save Leroy Sane’s effort but Chelsea missed two efforts – Jorginho and David Luiz the villains.
