Indeed, tempers have been flying in the Chelsea dressing since a terrible 5-2 defeat against West Brom at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

Reports had claimed that there was a training ground bust-up between Antonio Rudiger and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

There was pushing and arguing between the pair after Rudiger reportedly went in late on Kepa, with the goalkeeper reacting badly to the tackle.

Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso has reacted to the incident and claims that it’s a normal thing among players, but admitted that it shows the passion from the team.

“These are things that happen,” Alonso told beinSPORT.

“It shows there is a level of competition in the team, the hunger.

“We saw it on the training [ground] and it’s good for the team. Even before training finished, it was all good.

“It’s nothing new. It’s always happened. It will still happen. The thing we need to take is the positives and move on and get ready for the next game.”
