Marcos Alonso was criticised for his role in West Ham’s winner against Chelsea on Wednesday night
Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard says there was no need to sit down with Marcos Alonso following criticism for his role in West Ham’s winner on Wednesday night.
Alonso was left trailing as Andriy Yarmolenko scored in the 89th minute to hand West Ham a vital 3-2 victory, which left Chelsea fourth and just two points ahead of Manchester United.

Neither Sky Sports co-commentator Gary Neville, nor former Chelsea defender and studio guest Ashley Cole were impressed with Alonso’s casual tracking of Yarmolenko.
Remarking on the goal, Neville said Alonso “doesn’t bother, that’s why he’s under pressure at this club,” with Cole adding: “As players, you’ve got to want to work and not be happy to be beaten. Alonso needs to get back quicker.”
