Ben Chilwell’s future at Chelsea is already looking questionable, Mario Melchiot has said. Mario recently revealed that it is clear that Tuchel favours Marcos Alonso to the Englishman at the club, so the defender must step up.
According to him, getting dropped doesn’t mean Chilwell is a bad player, but Tuchel obviously trusts Alonso to fulfil the new role he has carved out at Stamford Bridge.
He added that Alonso has grabbed the opportunity presented to him with both hands, so Ben needs to convince the manager that he is also good enough.
His words, “One manager wants you for a particular system so it was more like a 4-3-3, but now the system has changed and made it really questionable for Chilwell.”
“It doesn’t mean he’s not a good player; I always admired him because I like him as a player, but Alonso knows this way of playing._
“Alonso has grabbed the opportunity, scored a goal, made a difference in the team and looks really comfortable. He looks very good compared to a player that hasn’t played for so long. Look how fit he is and how he is playing.”
“He looks comfortable on the ball. We all know he’s good, he does his job and that is why he’s playing.”
