Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri insists Kepa Arrizabalaga's antics in the Carabao Cup are a thing of the past, with the Spaniard having been recalled for the 2-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage.
After Kepa refused to be substituted during Chelsea's defeat to Manchester City last weekend, Sarri benched him in favour of Willy Caballero for the Blues' midweek Premier League victory over Tottenham in midweek.
However, he reversed that decision against Fulham on Sunday as Kepa was recalled to the starting lineup - with the Spaniard going on to put in a performance of the highest quality.
When asked about how well he performed on the day, Sarri said, as quoted by Chelsea's official website: "
The win puts Chelsea in a strong position to challenge for the top four and Sarri was quick to point out how significant the victory could prove to be in the long run.
"We had a great opportunity because we were five points from the top four but with two matches [in hand]. Now it’s two points.
"We will have to fight until the last minute in the last match. But we are fighting and in the last four matches we did well. A minimum [level] of consistency has arrived, but we have to continue."
