Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso has admitted that this season has proved far tougher than the last campaign, Spanish outlet Marca reports.
The club are doing well in the Champions League so far this season. However, the Blues are already nine points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City in the table. This is along with several injuries we’ve already suffered this season.
When speaking to Marca, Alonso spoke about the difficulties that his team have had to face this season. However, the 26-year-old insists the confidence in the team is high after recent performances.
Alonso is quoted by Marca saying:
“This season is more complicated than the previous one. We don’t have a very big squad which makes everything more difficult. But the victory over Watford has boosted our morale for the upcoming games.”
Eden Hazard missed the first month of the season along with the likes of Alvaro Morata and N’Golo Kante picking up knocks along the way.
Antonio Conte will be hoping his squad stay injury free at least till the January transfer window in the hope some signings will be made.
The main focus will be on tomorrow’s match against Bournemouth in the hope we can get the three points.
