‘-10/10 Performance’ ‘Woeful’ ‘Another Shocker’ – Chelsea Fans Want Sarri To Drop Defender For City Clash

Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso has been struggling for form over the past few weeks and he put in another poor display against Wolves last night.

How much his back injury is affecting his performances, it is not known, but it was a surprise that he was selected to start at Molineux considering his fitness problems.

Supporters are now calling on manager Maurizio Sarri to replace him with Emerson Palmieri for the game against Manchester City this weekend:

Alonso’s all-round game was poor last night. Usually, even if he can be suspect defensively, he will contribute in the final third of the pitch.

However, yesterday, he was equally culpable when given the ball in attacking areas, misplacing passes and failing to deliver good crosses.

Many now want to see Sarri give Emerson an opportunity in the side. The Italian has not put a foot wrong when given a chance in cup competitions this season, and he may be a better option than Alonso on Saturday, at least until the Spaniard recovers his form and fitness.
