His goal in the 68th minute at the Vitality Stadium against Bournemouth was the one that gave Chelsea ‘peace’, using his own word, but there is actually an interesting story behind those last seconds before that goal was scored.
I hit the post twice already in previous matches, so when I took the ball, everyone was saying, ‘please, one inch lower…’
Marcos Alonso said, revealing how his team-mates were teasing him as he was getting ready to take the shot. The Spaniard has been Chelsea’s free-kick taker for some time now, but had been unlucky in some previous attempts. Not this time.
With his family watching from the stands, Marcos Alonso scored his fifth of the season, practically sealing yet another Chelsea win.
I was very happy because it was the goal which gave us the peace to relax and make the game more comfortable. So happy for that and hopefully more to come
the Spanish defender said. Alonso is the highest scoring defender in the Premier League since November, proving that there is so much more about him than staying loyal to his defensive duties. With seven games remaining, he looks set to improve his tally further, helping Chelsea go all the way, and win the Premier League title.
