The Senegalese was left out as Chelsea lost disappointedly to Leicester City last night
The Blues although were the better side but failed to materialize a win as Leicester City snatched home the FA Cup.
It marked the second defeat for Chelsea in 2 consecutive games Tuchel decided to have Kepa Arrizabalaga in between the sticks.
Although the loss against Arsenal wasn’t his fault as he even played a key role in trying to keep out the ball but last night’s have been blamed on him by many fans.

Some say his presence warranted the strike as Tielemans wouldn’t have attempted striking if it was Edouard Mendy in the post while others said he didn’t dive to fast to keep out the ball as Mendy has been seen several keeping out such balls.
But in response to the night happenings, Mendy stated Kepa really gave his efforts in seeing the side stayed in the game but it just wasn’t their night.
Speaking to Talksport, the 29-year-old said; “Kepa has worked hard in trainings for the opportunity he just had, and he gave his best.
“It just was not our night as I saw Kepa tried his best but unfortunately couldn’t keep out the shot from Tielemans.
“The defense tried a lot too, also the whole team, we just have to get up now and focus on our next games”.
Chelsea have a top four finish to fight four after seeing Liverpool close in with a victory against Man United.
The Blues will face Leicester City again for the EPL on Tuesday before Villa’s clash.
