Chelsea left wing-back Marcos Alonso has revealed the Blues are ready for Tottenham ahead of Sunday’s London derby at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues trail fourth-placed Tottenham by five points and a win over Tottenham will reduce the gap to just two points.
“We have a massive game, it’s a must-win I think,” said Alonso.
“We are very focused on winning and it will be a very good game, for sure. We play at home and we have to win. It’s a derby against a good team in Tottenham but we are ready.
“They are a very strong team physically and they have a lot of players with quality. It will be tough, for sure, but I think with the quality we have, and the players we have, if we play our game and do well I’m sure we will get the three points.”
Alonso scored a brace in the 2-1 win over Tottenham early this season.
“I have great memories but that’s part of the past now and this is another game, a very important one,” Alonso said. “We will have to play well again in order to get the three points.
“It’s going to be massive for us if we win because we will be very close. There will be seven games to go so tomorrow will be a good time to get the first win.”
