Marcos Alonso was the hero at Stamford Bridge today, as his stoppage time freekick in the first-half beat Frasier Forster, and it ended up being the only goal of the game.

However, the Spaniard got a booking late in the game for time wasting, his fifth yellow card of the season and it earned him a suspension.

The Chelsea left wing-back will now miss Wednesday’s League Cup quarterfinal clash against Bournemouth.

Conte revealed his unhappiness about the suspension as he said after the game: “I prefer to have all my players available.

“Now there is a problem, also because Zappacosta is recovering from a bad flu. It can happen. We must be ready to overcome this difficulty.”

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.
