Alonso earned Chelsea a 1-1 draw at home with Leicester City after scoring a superb equaliser.

Leicester City took the lead early in the game through Maddison in the 7th minute against Chelsea. Maddison’s right-footed shot found the bottom corner from the end of the box. 

The Blues equalised in the 35th minute when Reece James picked out Alonso at the back post for him to volley and equalise. 

After this victory, Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea are now third in the league table with 71 points with only one game remaining. Meanwhile, Leicester City are ninth on the table with 49 points with a game remaining.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel told reporters: “We were the better team and deserved to win, we didn’t allow any chances, got punished by a shot from outside the box,”

“We created enough to win, didn’t allow transition and chances for Leicester, so I am fine with the performance.

“It’s a bit of a broken record we did not take what we deserve.”
