Marcos Alonso has been in top form this season, and to keep Ben Chilwell off the first team so far is no mean feat.
Alonso has made the left wing-back spot his after an excellent start to the season. The 30-year-old has been a beast down the left flank, and even Thomas Tuchel can’t take him off the pitch.
Alonso has gotten a goal and an assist this season, and his attacking influence down the left flank has been amazing.
Former Chelsea midfielder Andy Townsend has admitted that Alonso is even one of Chelsea’s best attacking players this season.
“Marcos Alonso is so transformed at the moment he’s one of their best attacking players!” Townsend told talkSPORT.
Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has also said a similar thing as he now believes Alonso is one of the best left-backs in the world following his performances this season, and he has credited it to Tuchel.
He said: “(Tuchel) does that across the board. Look at Alonso. Alonso’s playing like one of the best left-backs in the world at the moment.”
