Marcos Alonso

Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso praised the Chelsea defence after yesterday’s victory against Southampton. Chelsea have kept 4 cleansheets in a row this season, and it’s the first time the Blues have gone this long without conceding since the 2010/11 campaign.

“We are defending well,” noted Alonso. “We needed help from the team to remain on top and they did that by running and pressing high. Starting from the goalkeeper to the striker we are doing a great job defensively and this is how we have to continue.

“It was a tough game. Southampton started very well, pressing high, and we had a little difficulty but in the end we played a great game and we are very happy with the performance of the team.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
