Chelsea fans agree with Wayne Bridge's comments on Marcos Alonso

More questions are being asked of Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri after his side were dumped out of the FA Cup by Manchester United.

The Blues may have bounced back from their 6-0 loss to Manchester City with victory against Malmo in the Europa League on Thursday.

Chelsea started well against United but they were 2-0 down by half-time.

Paul Pogba did brilliantly to put the ball on a plate for Ander Herrera.

And moments before the interval, Pogba got himself on the scoresheet after fantastic work by Marcus Rashford.

When the half-time whistle sounded, there were boos inside Stamford Bridge.

During the 15-minute break, there was one player getting plenty of criticism on social media – Marcos Alonso.

Alonso was caught sleeping for United’s first goal as Herrera snuck past him to head home, before Rashford sprinted past the full-back to get the ball and provide the cross to Pogba for United’s second.

But it wasn’t just on social media that Alonso was getting scrutinised.

That’s because former Chelsea left-back Wayne Bridge also gave his opinion on Alonso.

“When Alonso gets asked questions defensively, I’m sorry but I just don’t think his good enough,” Bridge said.

“He’s good in the attacking phase but, goes to sleep mode while defending.”

It’s an opinion that more and more Chelsea fans are agreeing with as the season goes on and they were quick to praise Bridge for pointing out Alonso’s weaknesses.


Check out the reaction on social media:

Alonso performed slightly better after the break but Chelsea couldn’t make a comeback from United’s two first-half goals.
