Of course, fans have expressed their delight at the captain’s attitude on social media.

“That’s why he’s the captain. Maybe not a leader in the same way as [John] Terry, but his loyalty and love for the club is huge,” one Twitter user wrote.

Another tweeted: “What a man.”

A third said: “The joy and the love that he has for the club… that’s why he is [the] captain.”

Pedro opened the scoring for Chelsea in the second half, with Kieran Trippier’s own goal allowing Maurizio Sarri’s men to seal a 2-0 victory at Stamford Bridge.

Of course, a lot of the attention came ahead of the match surrounding Kepa Arrizabalaga, especially after his refusal to come off in the EFL Cup final.

As many fans had expected, the Chelsea boss made the decision to drop the 24-year-old Spaniard in favour of Willy Caballero.

Chelsea are sixth in the Premier League and are two points behind fifth-place Manchester United and three points behind fourth-place Arsenal.

Will Chelsea finish in the top four this season?
