Chelsea left wing-back Marcos Alonso is in no doubt Chelsea were deserved winners of the FA Cup.
“I think it was well-deserved,” said Alonso. “We knew playing this way we were going to suffer but the team defended very well and we scored one of the few chances we had.
“We felt comfortable, even if we suffered a little bit, because 90 minutes defending against good players. We stayed compact during the whole game and we helped each other out, so I think it was a much-deserved win.
“It was hard, not only in the second half but in the first half as well. We knew playing this way we were going to suffer and we had to defend a lot but I think we did a great game. We had a plan we executed very well and I’m very happy for the title.”
