Chelsea left wing-back Marcos Alonso has been hailed as the perfect professional by Chelsea legend Pat Nevin.

“There are some players you are always delighted for when they get man-of-the-match awards and he (Alonso) is certainly one,” Nevin wrote in Chelsea’s official website.

“Unassuming, uncomplaining – the perfect professional who quietly goes about his business with phenomenal reliability while usually letting others grab the headlines.

“The two big moments on Sunday will however linger long in the memory. When he galloped into the box in those last minutes having horsed up and down that pitch all day (only N’Golo ran further for Chelsea), you would have given him a standing ovation even if he hadn’t scored. What phenomenal spirit!”
