Heading into the game against Tottenham on Saturday, Marcos Alonso believes that Chelsea have the advantage over London rivals in this Saturday’s game.
Marcos Alonso believes that Chelsea’s Champions League absence will help the Blues recover quicker than their North London rivals, while Spurs (who lost to Monaco in the Champions League) will be occupied with their Champions League fixture and have fewer days to recover.
“Well, [Tottenham] in three days you can recover, very well, but maybe it can be an advantage for us,” said the summer signing.
“We have to think, game by game, and now we have Tottenham at home. It is going to be a massive three points for us and we have to rest now and then start getting ready for Saturday.” Said Alonso.
