Chelsea fullback Marcos Alonso has said Sergio Aguero gave them a lifeline for victory at Manchester City.

Aguero’s fluffed Panenka opened the door for Chelsea’s comeback for a 2-1 win, with Alonso scoring.

The fullback said, “We had another life and we went out and took it. We suffered a little bit more in the first half.

“We were a bit sloppy in the last five minutes but we came out and played a great second half so I think deserved the three points.

“In the second half, we were playing great and controlling the game. We had our chances, even a disallowed goal, so of course we believed. The team is doing great and we need to keep working hard because the best is still to come.”
