Marco Alonso’s stunning top five Chelsea goals to celebrate new contract

Chelsea defender Marco Alonso signed a new long-term contract at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday and he’s definitely become a major favourite during his time so far in London.

The Spanish left-back has committed his future with the Blues until 2023 and is currently enjoying life under manager Maurizio Sarri.

He has already won a Premier League title and an FA Cup since he joined in 2016 from Fiorentina under the tutelage of Antonio Conte, but will be aiming for plenty more silverware.

A huge part of Alonso’s game has been in attack, where he’s proven as a left-back or left wing-back that he can make a difference in the final third.

The 27-year-old left-footed ace has scored 15 goals in his 92 appearances across all competitions and some of them have been outrageously good.

Here is a look at the top five Alonso goals from his time with Chelsea:

Bournemouth 1-3 Chelsea in Premier League, 8 April  2017

Alonso completed the scoring in this league meeting to earn three points with a stunning free-kick, which is the first of four set-pieces he’s scored so far at Chelsea. The defender whipped in an inch-perfect finish to the top right corner and is a serious threat from dead-ball situations.

Tottenham 1-2 Chelsea in Premier League, 20 August 2017

Alonso opened the scoring in a memorable league encounter at Wembley with an almost identical free-kick to the one he scored against Bournemouth. It always means a lot scoring against a London rival and the Spaniard delivered on a huge stage.

Tottenham 1-2 Chelsea in Premier League, 20 August 2017

Alonso netted his second of the game in dramatic fashion in the 88th minute to hand Chelsea three precious points. He drove forward from wing-back in typical fashion to burst into the penalty area and his low shot was fired under Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

West Brom 0-4 Chelsea in Premier League, 18 November 2017

Chelsea cruised to three points away on the road last season at West Brom and Alonso scored an eye-catching goal that should live long in the memory. He peeled off at the back from a free-kick and showed unbelievable technique to side-foot a volley into the net from a tight angle.

Arsenal 2-2 Chelsea in Premier League, 3rd January 2018

Chelsea were denied by a late Hector Bellerin equaliser at the Emirates Stadium, but Alonso’s goal had put his side on the brink of victory. He swept home a Davide Zappacosta cross in great fashion in the box and it highlights his quality in front of goal.
