Paul Scholes: What I really think about Marcos Alonso at Chelsea

Paul Scholes delivers his verdict on Marcos Alonso's start to life at Chelsea

Paul Scholes has admitted that he is a big fan of Marcos Alonso following the defender’s impressive display for Chelsea against Leicester City on Saturday.

The defender scored a goal either side of half-time to add to Pedro’s second-half header and hand Chelsea a 3-0 win at the King Power Stadium.

Alonso has been a regular fixture in the Chelsea first team since arriving at the club as one of Antonio Conte’s first signings in the summer transfer window.

And former Manchester United midfielder Scholes has admitted that he is a keen admirer of the Spaniard.

Speaking to BT Sport after Chelsea’s win over Leicester on Saturday, Scholes said: “I did see him play a lot for Fiorentina and I think he had a little spell at Bolton too.

“He’s got a nice left foot, he gets up and down the pitch as he showed today, and he can chip in with goals.”

Chelsea’s win over Leicester left them flying high as the favourites to win the Premier League title this season.
