Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero was delighted with his team’s performance in the 2-1 win against Everton in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night, the club’s official website reports.

Caballero showed how reliable he was as Thibaut Courtois’ deputy. The Argentine produced several good saves, especially in the second half when the visitors piled on the pressure.

The 36-year-old, who joined the Blues on a free transfer after his contract with Manchester City came to an end, produced a fine display in keeping us 1-0 in front before Willian’s scintillating strike sealed the win.

When speaking to chelseafc.com, Caballero emphasised how important it was for the team to win every game across all competitions.

Caballero is quoted by the club’s official website saying:

“It’s always important to win, in every cup, every trophy, every game. At a big club it’s always important to win, and win again, and win again.”

Manager Antonio Conte now knows he has to dependable goalkeepers in his squad for this long season ahead.

Everton did score a late consolation meaning we failed to keep a clean sheet once again. However, Caballero can be proud of his performance in front of the Stamford Bridge crowd.
