Marcos Alonso’s superb understanding with Eden Hazard in the left wing has continued this season with the Spaniard assisting Hazard’s goal against Bournemouth on Saturday.
Talking about his understanding with Hazard, Alonso told El Pais: “It is the third year that we are sharing a wing and we each know each other’s strengths,’ he says.
“I try to give him one-on-one opportunities as often as possible because that is his strong point. And he looks to get me running in behind because he knows that’s what I’m good at.
“The 2-0 against Bournemouth comes from a one-two where I run inside and he goes outside of me. With players like Hazard there are so many options.”
