The Blues shot-stopper was demoted to number two following the arrival of Edouard Mendy, but he is currently enjoying a run in the team due to the Africa Cup Of Nations.
"It is true that I had not had the opportunity to play several games in a row for a few months," he told DAZN.
"I take it as an opportunity in which I think I am prepared when I am playing, I am doing well, I am leaving satisfied with the games, I am leaving happy, and that is what I was looking for."
Arrizabalaga has been linked with a move away from the club to join Lazio, but with Mendy away with his international team, any possible deal is unlikely to happen until the summer anyway.
Chelsea will be back in action on Tuesday when they face Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League. body check tags ::
