The Spaniard regained his place in the squad since Thomas Tuchel’s arrival to Stamford Bridge
Chelsea are back into the top 4 zone with several changes already arrived the club following the replacement of Frank Lampard with Thomas Tuchel.
The German arrived with a new mindset which has seen one of the forgotten men recalled into the team.
Chilwell provided the services needed but things took a new turn since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel who has more attacking than defensive duties for leftbacks.
This has inturn seen Marcus Alonso returned to the starting eleven after Ben Chilwell failed to meet Tuchel’s demands.
Marcos Alonso and his representatives had been pondering on a move out of Stamford Bridge earlier under Lampard.
But since he now has game time more than he used to under the former manager, Alonso is now more concentrated on Chelsea than moving away.
The 30-year-old is hoping to pen a 1-year extension deal ahead of his current deal’s expiration date.
Alonso’s current contract is valid until 2023 as he hopes to extend this stay over the said year.
Meanwhile, concerns are also raised that Tuchel has all of a sudden fizzled the club’s £50m signing out of the front page as Tuchel also came on to address the issue saying;
“If he [Chilwell] is [concerned], I can absolutely understand, because he got some difficult and very tight decisions go against him,’ Tuchel said last week.
“We took the choice for Marcos in a game where we played with five [defenders] because he was more familiar with the position, he played under Antonio Conte and we opted for him for his strengths in the air, to defend and attack set pieces.
“Marcos did a very good match and scored the decisive goal [against Burnley] and from there it was hard to come back. I had a talk with him before the Tottenham match and told him, “You have to trust me now, I see the potential, I see your talent”.
“It’s possible that [Chilwell] thinks a lot about this situation, hopefully not too much because he can have trust in himself first of all, and he can trust us as staff that we will keep on pushing and we will find possibilities to reward him.
“He showed a good performance in Sheffield which was very important for him and for the team, but sometimes it takes a little bit of time and there are hard decisions at the moment in clubs like Chelsea with a squad of 23 players.
“It’s my job to not lose these players, and to help them not to lose their trust, and if he keeps on going he’s a fantastic guy and he has a lot of potential and we will find possibilities for him to be on the pitch.
“At the same time, we wanted to have a start where we are fair to everybody and we don’t judge nobody by the amount of money that the club has spent, but to give everybody the feeling that this is a fresh start.
“If Marcos is in the moment the guy who took a bit the advantage of this situation, yes, but this is not the end for Chilly’s development, for sure.”
