Chelsea opened a three-point gap at the top of the Premier League with the victory over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday and Liverpool losing to Bournemouth.
Alonso expects the Premier League to be tight this season with many teams fighting for the title and expects Chelsea to give everything to win each game as it comes so we can maintain the momentum.
“In the Premier League there are so many teams fighting for the title and it will be very tough. We just have to think game-by-game and keep on giving everything we have to win those games,” Alonso told Chelsea Official Site.
“Winning game after game gives you confidence but you have to keep working. The results give you confidence to work in this way, though. We have got to use this momentum of the last eight league games and go on to have another good game against West Brom now.”
