Lots of Chelsea fans feel Alonso played a blinder and deserves every chance but I think Tuchel far too smart not to rotate and play Chilwell when tactics / opposition dictate a more defensive player or a different role for the LWB /LB position.
Alonso is arguable the best LWB in Chelsea. Tuchel is very pragmatic and can change his formation during games without making a sub. How well he performs won't make Thomas Tuchel switch to a back four in a game is already KNOWN.
Chilwell doesn’t have the vision. He misses open runs and forward balls all game. Runs the line and crosses on to the box. Every. Single. Time. He has done it against quality opposition numerous times. It’s not about whether he can rise to the occasion, it’s always been about what is being asked of him. It’s not even about playing LB, it’s the ask of being a MODERN LB that he can’t fulfill. '
Alonso has done it in the past agree, but he's also had some very underwhelming games too against both good and not so good opponents.. I was referring to this season if he can produce because he has been out for a while following his West Brom debacle
