Chelsea got back on track after their opening slip up against Burnley by using a pair of Marcos Alonso goals to lead the way to a 1-2 win over London rivals Tottenham.
After a week of speculation regarding how Chelsea's future looked following the loss to the Clarets, they responded positively today, as Victor Moses returned to the XI from suspension, Alvaro Morata was preferred to Michy Batshuayi and Tiémoué Bakayoko made his debut. The headlines belong to Alonso though, who reminded us of how dangerous he is in the Blues attack. A foul om David Luiz midway through the first half set up a free kick for the left-footed Alonso, and he curled one over the wall and past a helpless Hugo Lloris to put Chelsea ahead. While Spurs had their moments, Chelsea were in control late into the match but Batshuayi, who came on as a substitute, directed a SPurs free kick into Chelsea's own goal. Alonso saved the day though with a run down the left after a pass from Pedro and he beat the keeper short side for the match-winner. Aug 20 - 1:04 PM
