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.”
