Marcos Alonso already has a respectable four goals to his name so far this season, but by the looks of things we won’t be waiting very long for goal number five to come along.

Alonso will be hoping to replicate his success when the Blues welcome Bournemouth to Stamford Bridge in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening.
