Chelsea haven’t been particularly good over the last few weeks, and so it’s no real surprise that fans are feeling a little bit frustrated. Maurizio Sarri’s men were beaten comfortably by Arsenal at the weekend, and they’ve fallen well short of expectations in the league for much of the season.
Sarri must take some of the blame, but part of it must also go to the playing squad at Stamford Bridge. A number of players have underperformed in recent weeks, and that needs to change.
One of the worst performers has been Marcos Alonso. He started the season so well, but he’s really fallen off, and lately he’s offered very little both defensively and offensively, and he was very poor against Arsenal, in particular.
He’s quickly proving to be a real target of the Chelsea faithful online, and fans have hijacked a recent post by their club on Twitter to reveal their frustration
Chelsea recently paid tribute to former player Glen Johnson after he announced his retirement, with the club sharing a message on Twitter.

In response, whilst some fans are paying tribute to Johnson, others are hoping that Alonso follows the Englishman’s lead and retires, whilst others just aren’t happy with their Spanish defender – such is the frustration that he’s currently causing. See below:
I bet a retired Glen Johnson is better than an in form alonso
