Chelsea continued an excellent start to the new season by winning 3-0 away at Tottenham today – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter raved about the display from their star Marcos Alonso.
The Blues now have 13 points out of a possible 15 to begin the Premier League campaign, which is an indication of why people are mentioning them as title contenders.
Despite a fairly even and uneventful first half, Thomas Tuchel’s side turned on the style in the second half to blow Spurs away.
First of all, Thiago Silva’s header in the 49th minute opened the scoring for visitors Chelsea. The Brazilian centre-back powered above his opponents to get on the end of a corner.
Secondly, substitute N’Golo Kante added a second just before the hour mark. The midfielder’s shot from the edge of the box deflected in.
Finally, Antonio Rudiger tucked a shot into the bottom corner late on after a pull back from Timo Werner.
Chelsea’s next assignment in the league is to host reigning champions Manchester City next Saturday in the Premier League.
A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media believe that Alonso was top class against Spurs.
The 30-year-old left wing-back was a constant attacking threat with his advances in the opposition half. He went close to scoring with two second half attempt on target. Also, he put in crosses and always offered an outlet.
It’s obvious that he’s massively in favour with manager Tuchel right now, so Ben Chilwell is biding his time on the bench.
Here are some Blues fans hailing Alonso:
