“He’s going to show Chilwell how to be a proper wingback” – Chelsea fans react to Alonso return

Thomas Tuchel is well and truly in place at Chelsea now, and he’s making big decisions already.

There’s no bigger call in today’s lineup than the return of Marcos Alonso. The Spaniard was a total exile under Frank Lampard, and apparently fell out with the club legend too.

So this return marks a turning point, and just like everyone else he will now have a chance to impress the new gaffer. Ben Chilwell is going to be hard to displace as first choice at left back, especially given how much was spent on him, but he’s slowed down drastically in recent weeks and we understand the need for a change.

“He’s going to show Chilwell how to be a proper wingback” one user crowed, and while we still think the former Leicester man is going to end the season on top, having a bit of rotation and variety in the mix can only help.
