Chelsea fans praise Marcos Alonso after the win over Tottenham

Marcos Alonso was restored to the Chelsea team in the win over Tottenham – and many of the club’s supporters on Twitter were positive about his performance.

The 28-year-old was omitted from the squad in the Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City at the weekend, but Maurizio Sarri recalled him for the Premier League clash against Spurs.

He has been under much criticism from fans at Stamford Bridge this campaign for his performances and is under pressure from teammate Emerson Palmieri for the left-back position.

But the full-back proved he can be a good player on his day by helping the Blues beat London rivals Spurs 2-0 at home.

Pedro opened the scoring in the 57th minute with an excellent left-footed finish, which came after he dribbled past defender Toby Alderweireld so smoothly in the penalty area.

England international Kieran Trippier then netted a late own goal after a defensive mix up and it gave the hosts a deserved win.

Chelsea do remain sixth in the league table after the win, but remain just three points behind Arsenal in fourth and have a game in hand.

Many Chelsea fans did hand Alonso praise for his display, as he looked composed in possession and handled in-form attacker Heung-Min Son well.

Here are some of the fans praising the Spaniard’s contribution against Spurs:
