Video: Marcos Alonso Scores Inch-Perfect Free-Kick For Chelsea

Chelsea full-back Marcos Alonso built on his reputation as a cult hero with in the West London club this afternoon after scoring yet another spectacular free-kick for the Blues.

The 27-year-old Spaniard has scored several stunning set-pieces so far this season, not least against Spurs at Wembley back in August, but today’s was really up there with the best of his efforts.

Just think: Sunderland could’ve had him for pennies a few seasons ago.

You win some, you lose some.
