Chelsea fullback Alonso happy with his current form

Chelsea fullback Marcos Alonso is happy with his current form.

Alonso has started five consecutive Blues games, stepping in and up to the challenge after Ben Chilwell's knee injury.

"It's obviously never nice to see a team-mate injured and that's the most important thing," the 30-year-old told the club's website.

"When you don't play games, it's always tough but trying to help the team win games is our main job."

Under Thomas Tuchel, Alonso has been redeployed as a wing-back once again, a role he excelled in during our most recent Premier League title-winning season of 2016/17.

"I just try to listen to what the manager wants and what the opponent requires and try to help the team as much as I can.

"It's important to adapt and find solutions to different challenges during a game or depending on who we play against. It's good to have different options and try to have different ways to cause problems to the opponent."
