Chelsea fans praise Marcos Alonso’s performance against Valencia

Premiership Picks

Marcos Alonso had a great first season at Stamford Bridge in 2016/17 as the Blues won the Premier League title under Antonio Conte. However, it appears his stock has gradually decreased since then.

Indeed, since the arrival of Frank Lampard, the 28-year-old has lost his place as a first-choice starter. Instead, Emerson Palmieri has been chosen on the left side of the defence when fully fit this season.

However, the Italy international picked up an injury while playing for the Azzurri against Finland over a week ago and was missing from both of Chelsea’s last two games, against Wolves and Valencia.

Alonso, having come back in to the side to replace the 25-year-old, has taken advantage of the opportunity, averaging a WhoScored rating of 7.54 across the two matches.

His latest display, in the Champions League, even drew praise from the south-west London outfit’s supporters despite the club’s disappointing 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge.

It seems he was a rare shining light amid an otherwise disappointing evening for the Blues.

Chelsea fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
