Alonso touched the ball more than any other Chelsea player in the opening period but was dispossessed once, lost the ball twice because of heavy first touches and gave away possession from six of his 21 passes while committing three fouls.

His replacement, James, was excellent and deserved his goal but beyond this nightmare there seems little doubt that Emerson, rested after playing his first game in six weeks away to Watford on Saturday. will be considered first-choice full back from now on.
Alonso was taken off at half time.

if it was a United player, just based on the fact alone that he touched the ball more than any other United player, he would have stayed on at least till 70-80th min where the manager finally make his substitutions
