Does Marcos Alonso deserve to be Chelsea's starting left wing-back?

Marcos Alonso has been a mainstay of the Chelsea first team so far this season.

Chelsea Sneak Ahead Of Their Rivals

Chelsea Sneak Ahead Of Their Rivals

The Summer transfer window gave perhaps, a few indications of the season to come. Arsenal had a scatter gun approach to recruitment. Aston Villa may have improved overall, despite selling their star player.
