Alonso scores in FA Cup win
Chelsea eased into the fifth round of the FA Cup with a 3-0 victory against Newcastle at Stamford Bridge.
Michy Batshuayi scored twice in the first half before a second-half free-kick from Alonso sealed victory. The goal took the defender’s tally to seven goals so far this season, his career-high.
Marcos has been directly involved in 10 goals this season in all competitions, more than any other defender in the Premier League. It’s his third goal from a direct free-kick in all competitions, more than any other Premier League player.
Chelsea are back in Premier League action on Wednesday night against Bournemouth.
