Former Arsenal player-turned-pundit Paul Merson revealed Chelsea left wing-back Marcos Alonso is his player of the season.
Merson believes no Chelsea player has had a bad campaign but he picked Alonso as his player of the year because he didn’t expect him to be as good as he’s been, after previously watching him in England at Bolton and Sunderland.
“Everybody has been an eight out of 10 all season, everybody,” Merson said on Sky Sports.
“Players like Alonso, when he came in for that amount of money and David Luiz, I was like ‘really?’.
“For me Alonso would me up there as my player of the year, he’s one of my players of the season.
I always look at players who punch above their weight and you don’t expect to do it.
“I thought he’s been outstanding and so have Chelsea.
“They’re on for the double and that will be some feat.”
