Marcos Alonso hopes Chelsea can capitalise on rivals dropping points with a third win of the festive period against Southampton on Wednesday.
The Blues responded to their December 22 loss to Leicester with wins at Watford and Crystal Palace, while Manchester City, Tottenham and Arsenal have all dropped points amid the congested run of fixtures.

“It’s very difficult. You don’t have time for training, you can only play and have a good rest to get ready for the next one,” Alonso told Chelsea TV. “We’re seeing in the other fixtures it’s very difficult. Most of the teams are dropping points. It’s very important to get the three points.”
Chelsea will fancy their chances of beating Southampton on Wednesday as they have won their last seven games against the Saints, including a 3-0 victory at St Mary’s earlier in the season.
Southampton’s last win in the fixture came at Stamford Bridge in October 2015 when they claimed a 3-1 victory.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
