Ashley Cole Blames one player for Chelsea 3-2 loss to West Ham

Former Chelsea defender, Ashley Cole has blamed Marcos Alonso for the 3-2 loss suffered by Chelsea against West Ham in the English Premier League on Wednesday.

Willian got the opener for Chelsea from a spot kick which he brilliantly converted.

West Ham equalized and took the lead with two goals from Tomas Soucek and Michail Antonio.

Willian got a second to equalize for Chelsea before Andriy Yarlomenko got a late goal from counter attack to win the game for West Ham.

“Chelsea will be disappointed,” Cole told Sky Sports. “The thing I hate about full-backs is they are happy to run forward but not trackback.

“Chelsea FC needed a point here. A point would have been a good result for them.

“Could Alonso have tracked back? Could he have anticipated earlier? Could he have shown the same intensity to get back as he did to get forward? Yes. Alonso needs to run back quicker.”

“Chelsea had a lot of possession,” Cole added. “They could not break West Ham down. Chelsea would have expected to win coming off the pitch, Frank [Lampard] will be fuming with how Chelsea have defended.”
