Chelsea’s back-up goalkeeper Willy Caballero has said that he continues to hold a good relationship with Kepa Arrizabalaga despite the Spaniard’s antics in the League Cup final defeat to Manchester City. The Spain international was dropped from the lineup to face Tottenham Hotspur after the drama which unfolded during the weekend’s League Cup final but this did not affect the team’s performance as they secured a comfortable 2-0 win.
Chelsea have gone through a mixed level of showing since the turn of the year but they managed to produce a resolute defensive performance against Spurs, who failed to have a single shot on target. As such, they sealed maximum points from the game and this keeps them within the race for the Champions League places with just three points separating them from Arsenal, who are in the fourth position, having played an additional game.
Next up, the Capital outfit have a west London derby against Fulham on the road and the match offers them a good chance to secure another triumph. The Blues sealed a 2-0 win over the Cottagers during the reverse fixture at the Bridge.
