Chelsea left wing-back Marcos Alonso believes Chelsea have struggled this season under Antonio Conte due to the attitude of the players.
Alonso believes Chelsea have the quality but the attitude of the players have been the problem.
“The team had the conditions and quality to play much better (at City) – and I don’t think we were at our best,” Alonso told Spanish radio Cope.
“I think it’s an attitude problem and we have to make things clearer and improve quickly, because we have nine matches left and we want to be in the top four.
“I think that it is difficult, but we have to change the attitude, right?
“I don’t think we have a problem with quality, we have shown in many matches this season that we can be competitive against any team, like we were against Barcelona a couple of weeks ago.
“If we don’t reach that kind of level of performance in every match it’s because of our attitude.”
