Chelsea wing-back Marcos Alonso has reiterated the importance of taking all 3 points at the Riverside Stadium on Sunday, a ground he calls a difficult one.
“We have to have a good game on Sunday, to get a good result at a very difficult stadium in Middlesbrough,” Alonso tells the club’s official newsletter.
“Of course we have been playing well and after two weeks most of us have had time to rest, some have been thinking about the national teams, but now we have to get our heads back into the Premier League and get a good result at a very difficult stadium in Middlesbrough.”
The Spaniard revealed that he has enjoyed his season so far, and has urged the team to keep working hard.
“I have enjoyed it a lot but it’s important we keep on like this,” he adds. “The season is long and we’ve achieved nothing yet.
“We have to keep working hard to keep the results as they have been in the last few league games.” Said Alonso.
