Some Chelsea fans are lambasting ‘struggling’ star after poor first half-display v Fulham

Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso has been heavily criticised by supporters on social media for his performance against the Cottagers.

The Blues are 1-0 up at Stamford Bridge thanks to a fourth-minute Pedro strike, but despite dominating the majority of the first period, the visitors will still harbour hopes of an upset.

Maurizio Sarri’s men have enjoyed the lion share of possession and generally outplayed their London rivals in Sunday’s Premier League clash so far, but they squandered three good chances to extend their lead.

Alonso has been guilty of losing the ball in advanced areas on several occasions, while his final balls into the box have also been of a low standard, much to the annoyance of Chelsea fans on Twitter who have acknowledged that he seems to be ‘struggling’.

 

The Blues are fourth in the league table at the moment and ten points behind leaders Manchester City, but a win in front of their home faithful will see them leapfrog Tottenham temporarily into third before they face off against Arsenal in today’s north London derby.

Sarri’s men suffered a hugely disappointing defeat last weekend at the hands of Spurs, going down 3-1 at Wembley in a match which ultimately saw their Blues lose their unbeaten run across all competitions this term.

Chelsea will be strong favourites to go on and secure a valuable three points against Fulham in the second half, but Alonso will have to improve his distribution on the left-hand side in order to remain on the pitch and silence his doubters.
