Alonso: Too early to rule Chelsea out of title race.

Alonso has issued a rallying cry to his Chelsea teammates asking them to play better as a team ahead of City clash.

Marcos Alonso says it is too early to rule Chelsea out of the Premier League title race despite being 10 points behind leaders Manchester City.

The Blues have lost two of their last three matches in the league, with their most recent defeat at Wolverhampton during midweek.

However, speaking ahead of Chelsea’s home clash against Man City this weekend, left-back Alonso believes it is too soon to write off their title chances.

"It's too early to talk about it, obviously. If we lose [on Saturday] we are going to be 13 points from the top and that's a lot of points but we have to think, prepare for the game well, and not pay attention to the table at the moment," he said.

"It is the perfect opportunity to come back. It will be a great game for sure, everyone will be very motivated to play.

"We are very disappointed after the defeat but it is back to work and we will work harder and start playing better as a team."

He continued: "We have to play more as a team. It's something we have to analyse, we will try our best to improve as soon as possible.

"We're not doing very well at the moment. More individually [than] as a team, we have to get better as a collective.

"We had the chances to win, we were controlling the game and started the second half having a couple of chances.

"The last few games we were not loyal to our style of play and, even if we did not deserve it, we lose.

"We are going through a hard moment and you have to work very hard, stay together and get back to winning as soon as possible."
