Marcos Alonso has backed Chelsea teammate Romelu Lukaku to win the Premier League Golden Boot this season.
The 28 year old striker has three goals in three games for Chelsea and Alonso believes the Belgian striker has what it takes to win the Golden Boot.
“He has shown his abilities. He is so strong and he scores goals,” he told Chelsea FC.
“Of course he is one of the best in his position and it’s great to have him with us. It will be a tough fight [for the Golden Boot] but of course he’s got a chance.
“If the whole team will deliver for him and be together and put in performances like this, he’s just going to have to score the goals and we will see at the end of the season.
“You see all the good teams in the last few teams who have won the league, they’ve had someone in the top scorers list. That’s what we will have with Lukaku this season, I’m sure. Hopefully he will help us achieve bigger things and score as many goals as he can.”
