It’s becoming a regular theme, Chelsea fans moaning about Marcos Alonso during games.

Ordinarily, Chelsea fans take issue with his suspect defending or poor crossing, but not this time – it was for the manner in which he picked up a yellow card early on in the contest.

Much was asked of Alonso with a high pass from David Luiz, which he was unable to bring under control and subsequently gave away a throw-in. His frustration at the mishit ball was evident.

Alonso needlessly slapped the ball away, which by the letter of the law warrants a booking, which the referee didn’t hesitate to award him with.

It may seem trivial to some, but Chelsea fans’ pre-existing vendetta against the Spaniard meant that this was used as another opportunity for criticism.

Here’s how Chelsea fans on Twitter angrily reacted to the incident which saw Alonso pick up a yellow. If you’re not already, follow us @TalkChelsea.
