• Defender says Premier League leaders are galvanised by Spurs’ hot pursuit
• ’We know what we are playing for, motivation is 100%,’ says Spaniard
Marcos Alonso has insisted Chelsea are mentally strong enough to cope with the pressure of holding off Tottenham Hotspur’s continued pursuit of the Premier League title.
Alonso capped Chelsea’s 3-1 victory at Bournemouth on Saturday evening with a superb free-kick to maintain a seven‑point lead over second-placed Spurs, who had cut the gap to four for a few hours by beating Watford 4-0 at lunchtime. Chelsea will face a similar situation next weekend too, with Tottenham playing Bournemouth at home on Saturday before Chelsea travel to Manchester United on Sunday.
