- Match Analysis
Alonso was the hero for Chelsea on Saturday as he netted the Blues’ winner in their 1-0 victory over The Saints at Stamford Bridge with a well-struck free-kick.
Courtois was full of praise for Alonso following the west London outfit’s win on Sunday and also spoke about his overall impact at the club.
Speaking to Chelsea’s website after the game, Courtois said: “Marcos plays so many games on that wing and I don’t think people can imagine how hard that job is, because it’s always attacking-defending, attacking-defending.
“You don’t stop, you’re running a lot, and he’s playing almost every three days.
“He does very well for us and he’s improved very much throughout last season and this season as well.
“His quality of free-kicks is amazing and those situations in football nowadays are so important, so if you can score from that it’s very good.”
