Although I would have thought Azpi would be a better option at LWB than Saul

Azpi should be our first choice lwb if chilwell is gone for the season. Alonso is a train wreck

That's a train wreck in the Premier League. It wouldn't be so bad if his mind was quicker than his body, but sadly it isn't (at least not when defending). He has his applications, but not when we are under pressure of any kind and his publicised weaknesses make him an easy target.

He played away at Liverpool, spurs, and arsenal.........7 points. 

He's absolutely fine as LWB with a pacey LCB there

I think Alonso is finding it hard to get back up to the level he was at earlier in the season.

Always surprises me seeing criticism of Alonso.

He has never let us down when it matters and is an absolute game changer on his day.  Opposition fans would never believe that he gets stick on here, particularly both North London Muppets.  

He has never had pace and it's never mattered.  

Some of our fanbase don't deserve him.  Absolute legend in my book.

Agree overall but there have been times when his lack of pace mattered...mind you I'm pretty sure he could outsprint most of us here even in our prime!.....and I still remember with horror the penalty conceded against Manure that EVERYONE could see coming in slow motion...BUT..indeed a Legend and always Chelsea.

Compare the post subject...no contest.

Clearly. Right?

Did you not see the season he was our  top scorer ? Clearly not 

Put a fast winger up against him and he's hopeless , so guess what happens when the opposition know Chilwell isn't playing ?

?? I don't understand. Are you now admitting he is a train wreck?  😂
