The Main Reasons Why Alonso is among the Aug player of month nominees.

The Spanish international has experienced one of his best start of the season. The player has been warming the bench since the arrival of their new coach. Having given some games to prove, the left footed wing back different has shown clearly that he deserves the starting spot in the Chelsea first 11.

Alonso got Chelsea off to a flying start to the season, opening the scoring with a wonderful free-kick against Crystal Palace on the opening day.

Since then, the wing-back has kept his place in the team, performing superbly as he kept Ben Chilwell out of the starting XI. Alonso has played every minute of the season so far, going on to be crucial in a win at Arsenal and draw against Liverpool at Anfield, as the Blues were reduced to ten men.

Marcos has to compete with Michail Antonio, Said Benrahma, Eric Dier, Demarai Gray and Mason Greenwood who have also been nominated for the player of the month award.
