Chelsea match-winner Alonso hails champion spirit after stunning Spurs

20 August 2017 20:11

Marcos Alonso believes Chelsea showed their title-winning togetherness in a dramatic 2-1 win against Tottenham.

Spanish wing-back Alonso scored twice - a fine free-kick and a late winner - to secure the champions' first points of the season after a dismal home defeat against Burnley last week.

Chelsea had found themselves three goals down at half-time at Stamford Bridge and had two men sent off in that 3-2 reverse, but Alonso was delighted to show the unity in the squad in a return to winning ways against rivals Spurs at Wembley.

"I don't think I have hit better [free-kicks] than that, even in training," he said. "I am very happy for the win.

"There has been a lot of talking during the week, but we showed we are together as a team."

 

Alonso added: "We tried to more of the ball in the second half but they were pressing a lot. We were compact and it was a very good game from us.

"David Luiz did such a good job today, a very good game from him. To get the winner in front of the fans was great."
