Video: Marcos Alonso Finishes Off a Stunning Team Goal for Chelsea

Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso had doubled his side’s lead against Middlesbrough, after putting the finishing touch on a fantastic piece of play.

Antonio Conte’s side have dominated proceedings at Stamford Bridge, with Diego Costa giving the Premier League table-toppers a deserved advantage after 23 minutes.

However, the Spaniard’s goal has just been outdone by Alonso, who’s strike might not have been the cleanest… but the build up play beforehand was simply sublime.

Nemanja Matic, Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard, Costa, Pedro and César Azpilicueta all touched the ball in a move which resembled a keep-ball session from the training field, before Alonso slotted past Brad Guzan:

If Chelsea can hold onto their lead and hand Middlesbrough their 17th loss of the season, Steve Agnew’s side will be relegated to the Championship.

A victory for the Blues would also tighten their grip on the Premier League title and mean a win against West Brom on Friday would hand them the trophy.
