The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to secure a win this weekend against Man Utd…
Unsurprisingly, it seems as though that determination to win is not unique to just the fans – with Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso recently speaking to the Evening Standard – delivering a message to his teammates to ensure that they perform well this weekend.
As per the Evening Standard, he said: “It will be tougher this time around… It will be a very hard game, even more so after losing twice against us”.
Alonso added: ‘They will give even more to try and beat us. We will have to do the same or more than before to get another win”.
The Spanish defender’s comments will certainly need to be heeded by his teammates this weekend, with Man Utd always able to pull a good performance out of the bag. They have been on a good run in the Premier League, and whilst they have been drawing a little too frequently, there is no doubting the quality that Mourinho’s side has.
Alonso will need to be on his game in order to properly defend against the likes of Anthony Martial and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Man Utd attack is undoubtedly their strongest asset, and the Blues will need to be on form to protect their goalkeeper from their rampaging forward army. Chelsea’s defence is pretty stellar too, though, and will be up to the task.
Our landlord is expecting a full house this weekend.
