Marcos Alonso aims digs at Tottenham which will delight Chelsea fans

Barcelona star Marcos Alonso has taken a sly dig at Tottenham, much to the delight of Chelsea fans. After Barcelona’s 4-2 victory over Tottenham for the Joan Gamper Trophy, Alonso posted a picture of himself on Instagram with the caption, “Some things never change. Barca 4 – 2 Tottenham.” This cheeky remark is likely to irk Tottenham fans, who previously gave Alonso a hard time when he played for Chelsea. However, Chelsea supporters were thrilled to see their former player twist the knife on their rivals.

Alonso, who joined Barcelona on a free transfer in 2022 after six years at Chelsea, had a successful stint with the Blues. During his time at Chelsea, he made 212 appearances, scored 29 goals, and won several major trophies, including the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, and Europa League.

In the friendly match against Barcelona, Tottenham initially led 2-1 thanks to two goals from Oliver Skipp. However, Barcelona equalized with 10 minutes remaining through Ferran Torres, and then Ansu Fati and Abde Ezzalzouli scored in injury time to secure a 4-2 victory for Barcelona. This result led to fans joking about not needing Harry Kane, Tottenham’s star striker.

Chelsea fans everywhere can celebrate after left back Marcos Alonso directed a dig at local rivals Tottenham Hotspur, providing the latest talking point in an already heated rivalry.

Alonso, playing a starring role in Chelsea’s recent 3-1 win over Tottenham, took to Twitter after the match to encourage the visiting supporters at Stamford Bridge to “be louder”.

The Spaniard’s post has certainly stirred the pot between two of the Premier League’s biggest sides, and Blues fans are relishing the prospect of another round of tussle with their North London counterparts.

The initial war of words began when Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier suggested Spurs “were the better team” on the day, which was quickly met with a tactical response from Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri.

“I think Tottenham were not better than us,” Sarri noted, “they played better in the first 25 minutes and I was really worried. But in the second half, we played better in the offensive phase.”

Nevertheless, Dier’s comments didn’t go unnoticed in the Blues’ camp, prompting Alonso to dig the knife in even further by prompting Tottenham fan to “train better” for next time.

With a certain level of tension already brewing between the two sides ahead of a crunch League Cup semi-final clash in January, Alonso’s tweet is unlikely to defuse the situation anytime soon.

Whether this comments have any bearing on that fixture or the two sides meeting again in the league in February remains to be seen, but it’s certainly enough to keep Chelsea supporters happy.
