Marcos Alonso has taken to social media to wish Chelsea fans and his followers a Merry Christmas.

The defender has been getting used to life in the Premier League following his summer transfer to Chelsea.

Alonso has been a regular fixture in the Chelsea team this season under new boss Antonio Conte and will be expecting to feature when the Blues host Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge on Boxing Day in the Premier League.

The 25-year-old has made 12 appearances in the Premier League this season, scoring one goal and making two assists.

And the defender looked thrilled to be spending some time with his loved ones on Christmas Eve ahead of Chelsea training the next day.

Mi felicidad es teneros a vosotros! Os deseamos una Feliz Navidad! 🎄🎁 #familyfirst #lucky 🙏🏼”
