Marcos Alonso was a huge difference for Chelsea today in terms of game-changing moments as the Blues beat Newcastle on Sunday afternoon.

The Spaniard was adjudged to be fouled in the box by Fabian Schar which was then converted by Eden Hazard.

However, it was a 50/50 decision which caused some debate on social media and Alonso has had his say on the matter as he spoke to Sky Sports post match.
