Today, with a Premier League fixture against Tottenham Hotspur looming large, those Chelsea players who have been on international duty will be returning to Cobham, for training.

Amongst them, and making his first-ever return to training after being selected for international duty, will be Marcos Alonso
The 27-year-old, who has become an essential part of Antonio Conte`s team, made his international debut for Spain, against Argentina, a game the Spaniards won 5-1.

In doing so, Alonso emulated his father and grandfather in becoming a full Spanish international, the Alonso`s are the first Spanish family to have three generations pull on the national shirt.

In the past, his grandfather made his debut against France, on 17 March 1955, whilst his father made his Spanish debut, against England, on 25 March 1981, it`s kind of strange that the month of March features so prominently!

In fact, when it comes to that remarkable fact, there have only ever been seven instances of the event happening, quite an achievement to be part of such a unique statistic I think you`ll agree.

However, when it comes to remaining a Chelsea player, Alonso has good news.

Lurking in the pages of the Spanish news source, Marca, Alonso has quashed any speculation relating to a possible departure from Stamford Bridge, inferring the thought has never crossed his mind.

Now that is good to hear, the Spaniard may have his critics when it comes to some of the defensive aspects of his game but he has that unnerving knack of being in the right spot to score with his goals proving to be invaluable to Chelsea in the last couple of two seasons.

  • If he has the odd brain fade in defence, it’s hardly surprising considering the number of shifts he’s put in up & down the left touchline; we can all lose concentration when tired. During the early part of his Chelsea career I said in a post on here that he had an eye for goal & so it has proved. Wonderful player, great signing, long may he stay.
