Asked whether Chelsea would be able to fight for the championship next term, Alonso replied: "I'll say yes.
"We saw it a few years back where we won our most recent championship. And we have since been able to compete against the others.
"I think we are capable of winning against any team and we just need to improve a little bit in terms of continuity throughout the season. We will try to get a little closer (in winning the championship) next season."
