Chelsea fans have taken to Twitter to voice their opinion on Marcos Alonso’s display at the Amex against Brighton, in which he looked far from accomplished and struggled throughout.
The Spaniard is an excellent player when it comes to popping up with timely goals and also when it comes to striking a deal ball from a set-piece situation, but his ability to defend has often been called into question.
Fans of the Blues were not happy with the former Bolton man in the way that he defended against Solly March, who managed to get himself on the scoresheet and also get Alonso booked as the full-back tugged his shirt whilst March was bearing down on goal.
With Emerson Palmieri impressing in the cup competitions, Alonso’s form may give Maurizio Sarri a decision to make in defence. In Chelsea fans’ case, however, the man they signed from Fiorentina is certainly not in their good books…
Yes we won but don’t let that distract you from the fact that Willian and Marcos Alonso became worse in that match than they had been all season. Worst displays I’ve ever seen.

What does it take for Marcos Alonso to be dropped?

Marcos Alonso has been embarrassing…he needs to be dropped like Morata..Emerson needs to start now..

Not our best performance in the second half and Brighton took it to us. Most important thing is the 3 points.
Also, Marcos Alonso #OUT

Another suspect performance from Marcos Alonso, who could easily have seen red… not really sure what Emerson must do to get a starting spot in this side.
