Marcos Alonso: It’s a pity

Chelsea left wing-back Marcos Alonso had a good game against Manchester United, and his stunning volley was the opener, as he beat De Gea on the hour mark.

However, barely two minutes after his goal, Cristiano Ronaldo equalised for Manchester United, and the game ended that way.

Marcos Alonso was disappointed that Chelsea drew the game after a dominating display at Old Trafford.

“We are a bit disappointed,’ said Alonso.

‘We were the better team during the whole game. We had so many chances, we conceded little, so it’s a pity to only get one point.

“It can happen. The quality was there, the chances were there, so it’s just about being a little bit more lucky and a little bit more clinical in front of goal. Our strikers have been doing a great job. We can only ask for 110 per cent from ourselves and try to do better next time and score more.”
