Chelsea FC
Alonso Heads Home Precious Winner

This was yet another unconvincing performance but a most welcome result. After the first eleven hit the heights with an impressive conquest of West Ham three nights ago, the periphery players cooked up a largely mediocre effort. However the team warmed to their task as the evening wore on, and a fine cross from Willian was converted from close range by the lurking Alonso. The visitors now have one foot in the semi finals, but know that this fare will not suffice against Liverfools this Sunday, but then fortunately many of these turkeys will be warming the bench instead.
