There seemed to be unrest in the Chelsea camp on the eve of their Europa League final clash against Premier League rivals, Arsenal, in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Footage showing manager, Maurizio Sarri, storming out of Chelsea's final training session at the Olympic stadium after an altercation between his players have gone viral.

The Italian flung his baseball cap to the ground in frustration, kicking it across the technical area, then picking it up and repeating the action, before departing down the tunnel while the session was still winding up.

David Luiz had reacted angrily to Higuain's tackle on him during a small keep-ball exercise, prompting a minor altercation between both players.

Tensions were quickly eased by the captain, Cezar Azpilicueta, but that did little to calm Sarri, who eventually stormed away after Higuain and Pedro had left the session.

Recall that Higuain was caught on camera sulking through a Chelsea training before angrily kicking a ball into the air. It is speculated that the striker has been told his fate with the club and that has riled him in recent days.
