'KEPA SITUATION WAS A GOOD THING' - SARRI SAYS TEAM HAS GROWN FROM CARABAO CUP INCIDENT



Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has claimed Kepa Arrizabalaga's controversial refusal to be substituted in the Carabao Cup final has been a good thing for the team.

The goalkeeper refused to come off against Man City late in extra-time, waving off his manager, who was trying to put back-up Willy Caballero in the match.

Kepa ended up staying on the pitch and took part in a penalty shootout after 120 scoreless minutes, with City emerging victorious.

The Italian even went as far as to say that the incident with Kepa, which many saw as evidence Sarri's players were tuning him out, was a net positive for his team.

"In the end, the Kepa situation was a good thing for our group, too," Sarri said.

"In the last five matches, we won four matches and drew against Manchester City. In five matches, we conceded only one goal. So we are improving in consistency.

"But we have to be careful. We had a long period of good results in the past and then, suddenly, two weeks of disaster. So we have to be careful."
