Alonso happy at Chelsea despite fans' criticism

Maurizio Sarri says Chelsea must be prepared if Eden Hazard leaves the club, and also addresses his own future.

Marcos Alonso has said he is happy to stay at Chelsea despite a "tough season" and added that he has not let fan criticism affect him.

Reports in recent months have linked Alonso, who signed a contract extension in October, with a return to Spain after he struggled to hold down a starting spot.

Alonso said he had found it tough to adapt to Maurizio Sarri's instructions at times but saw his future at Stamford Bridge despite becoming a target for criticism from sections of the fanbase.

Gonzalo Higuain 3/10, Marcos Alonso 2/10 but Chelsea rally for controversial late win at Cardiff

Late goals from Cesar Azpilicueta and Ruben Loftus-Cheek keep Chelsea in the top four hunt with a win at Cardiff.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek was the hero from the bench as Chelsea scored twice in the final 10 minutes to come back from a goal down and beat Cardiff City 2-1, sparing Maurizio Sarri another embarrassing defeat that would have raised fresh questions about his future.

Positives

Chelsea had not come from behind to win a Premier League game since beating Cardiff in September, and this was a timely return of the mental resilience that Sarri has often questioned this season. A top-four finish in the Premier...

Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho overrun in midfield as listless Chelsea dumped from the FA Cup

Goals from Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba helped Manchester United avenge last season's FA Cup final defeat by dumping Chelsea out of the competition in the fifth round, winning by a score of 2-0 on another torrid night for Maurizio Sarri.

Positives

Chelsea still have the Carabao Cup final to look forward to next week ... against the Manchester City team that put six goals past them without reply a week ago.

Negatives

Chelsea's defending in the middle third of the pitch was woeful, allowing...

Chelsea boss Sarri gets 1/10 after playing into Guardiola's hands in City thrashing

Manchester City handed Chelsea their heaviest defeat since 1991 as a first-half blitz won the game for the Premier League champions inside the first 25 minutes, with Sergio Aguero completing his hat trick in the second half and Raheem Sterling netting a late second to complete a 6-0 win.

Positives

At least Chelsea have the Carabao Cup final to look forward to...oh.

Negatives

This was a defeat to raise questions about the entire Maurizio Sarri project. Chelsea came to the Etihad Stadium, tried...

Eden Hazard, N'Golo Kante underwhelm as Chelsea well-beaten by rivals Arsenal

LONDON -- First-half goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny gave Arsenal a 2-0 victory over a woeful Chelsea at the Emirates to make the race for a top-four finish in the Premier League tighter than ever.

Positives

Chelsea could have lost by a lot more than two goals after a first-half performance without any redeeming features. If nothing else, however, this kind of emphatic defeat should provide Maurizio Sarri with the push he needs to shake up a stale and stagnant starting XI.

Negatives

This...

Ruben Loftus-Cheek takes his chance, Marcos Alonso exposed in Chelsea defeat

Chelsea suffered their second Premier League defeat of the season at the Molineux Stadium as goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota gave Wolves -- inspired by dazzling youngster Morgan Gibbs-White -- a first victory since early October.

Positives

Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Andreas Christensen took their first real Premier League opportunities, perhaps giving Maurizio Sarri more reason to trust them in the future, while the likes of Jorginho and David Luiz will at least be fresh for the visit of Manchester...
