Marcos scores late winner!
Marcos Alonso’s late strike settled a frantic Premier League classic in Chelsea’s favour, 3-2, after Arsenal fought back from two goals down at Stamford Bridge.
It was a breathtaking finish and a significant three points for the Blues. The Spaniard provided the assist for the first goal and netted the late winner…
‘I’m very happy,’ said Alonso. ‘At the beginning of the season it is not easy to win games and gain points. We played a very good game, apart from the end of the first half when we allowed them to play and gave them too much space.’
‘It was massive. We are working under a new manager on lots of new things and it’s not easy, but I think during most of the game we controlled it and we played very good football. It was a good game and I’m very happy for the fans and for the team.’
‘I think it was a bit of a crazy game, which is usual in the Premier League. These things happen, but the way we came back in the second half, it was very important to have this personality, to play and to come back after a bad end to the first half. I think that was very important and shows we are working well and focused on winning.’
‘I think we knew what to do when we came back in the second half. We are adapting very well. I think we have to go game by game, working hard and concentrating – that is the way to go forward.’
