Chilwell warned Chelsea spell already ‘questionable’ as Tuchel favours Alonso over £50m left-back

Ben Chilwell Chelsea 2020-21

Ben Chilwell’s position and future at Chelsea are already “questionable”, says Mario Melchiot, with a £50 million ($69m) addition by the Blues losing his place to Marcos Alonso.

Positive progress was made on the back of a big-money switch, once an early injury was shaken off, and the left-back berth appeared to have become his own.

A change in the dugout has, however, delivered tactical tweaks on the field, with Thomas Tuchel reverting to a three-man defence.

With wing-backs now being favoured, Spain international Alonso – who found himself frozen out under Lampard – has earned a reprieve.

He has caught the eye through a run of three successive clean sheets under a German coach, leaving Chilwell to mull over where he stands.

Former Chelsea full-back Melchiot told talkSPORT: “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. Helooks 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.”

Chelsea had been struggling for consistency when Lampard was ushered through the exits, but seven points from nine have been picked up under Tuchel.

The Blues are back up to sixth in the Premier League table, four points adrift of the top four, and Melchiot believes Champions League qualification can be chased down.

The Dutchman added: “Oh yeah, by far they can get that.

“This is only the first test he Tuchel had, so we have to realistic. Do they have the chance? Yeah.

“I always felt Chelsea had to aim for the Champions League spots and go for it. The only thing now is how are they going to perform in the next game. This was his first biggest test.

“If you saw Tuchel against Tottenham, it was the first time he emotionally reacted in a different way than when we saw before.

“He knows there is no waiting time. The way he delivered the team to make them win, this win was way bigger than we thought it would be for him.”
