Chelsea welcome Pep Guardiola side at the Bridge these Saturday. And the blues are coming from five undefeated run of games in the premier league. Since the beginning of the new campaign.
Tuchel's men went past Aston Villa in midweek Carabao Cup fifth round tie. Though it took the Londoners a penalty save from Kepa Arrizabalaga. To take them through to face Southampton in the fourth round tie.
Marcos Alonso earlier these week had made his thoughts clear. Especially on the issue of taking a knee before matches. And he has opted to point at the badge which states 'No Room For Racism' instead of taking a knee.
These because he believes the more players take a knee the more the whole thing loses it's meaning. And waat's the authorities to take a more determined approach. To terminate discrimination and abuse in football.
Not long and Lukaku has joined the fight against racism in different perspectives. As per the Belgium International sentiments. He wants Club captains, big players of huge personalities.
And CEO'S of Instagram and other Government representatives. To sit on a round table and have a healthy discussion on racism factor. As he claims after every game.
Still there are another insult and abuse. He's not fighting for himself. But for others as well and the generations to come. Which again is a very good move from him.
Chelsea boss had earlier commented to Marcos Alonso stand on the issue. And he declared his support to his players. Especially on any approach they take on the fight against racism and abuse.
