Chelsea have failed to defend the title they won last season as Antonio Conte’s men are currently fifth on the table and five points behind Tottenham Hotspur.
The Blues have a top four spot to contend as well as an FA Cup trophy to fight for, and Marcos Alonso has admitted that he’s looking forward to the contests.
“In England, after winning the Premier League, it is normal to have a difficult year,” he told Marca.
“Especially with the level that Manchester City are maintaining throughout the season.
“Now we have an important end of the year, to qualify for the Champions League and fight for the FA Cup.
“We’re looking forward to it.”
