Marcos Alonso charges team to win Premier League

Chelsea's defender says Manchester City's dominance form cannot last indefinitely, and believes his side can capitalise when the leaders falter.

Marcos Alonso has challenged Chelsea to repeat their winning streak from last season and reel in Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola's City travel to West Brom on Saturday with a five-point lead at the summit from Manchester United and Tottenham, having won eight and drawn one of their nine top-flight matches so far. Chelsea are four points further back after three defeats over the same period.

Alonso believes the Blues' return to the Champions League has taken a toll on the squad, while a run to the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup has increased their workload further.

But Antonio Conte's side battled back from behind to secure a much-needed 4-2 win over Watford last weekend and the wing-back told Marca that morale has lifted ahead of Saturday's trip to Bournemouth.
 "This season is more complicated than the previous one," Alonso said.

"We have four competitions and, besides, we do not have a very big squad, which makes everything more difficult. "But winning games in the final minutes, like against Watford, will give us morale for the next games."

Victory at the Vitality Stadium will see Chelsea gain ground on the chasing pack, with United and Spurs playing each other at Old Trafford, but it is City who Alonso has in his sights.
