Premier league news Marcos Alonso lifts lid on Chelsea training bust up between Rudiger and Kepa Last spor news
PremierLeague-News.Com - Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger and goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga were involved in an altercation at the Blues' training ground after the West Brom defeat
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Marcos Alonso has played down the training ground bust-up between Chelsea teammates Antonio Rudiger and Kepa Arrizabalaga. As first reported by the Telegraph, the pair were separated after an altercation, with Thomas Tuchel sending Rudiger in from training five minutes before the end of the session to calm down. The spat stemmed from a small-sided game in which Kepa was said to be the victim of a late tackle from Rudiger. However, ahead of their huge Champions League quarter-final first leg against Porto on Wednesday, defender Marcos Alonso has quashed the talk around it and said it was "good for the team".

"This shows the level of competition there is in the team, the hunger we saw on training ground - that's good for the team. Of course, even before training finished it was all good. "[It is] nothing new, it has always happened, it will still happen and the thing we need to take is take the positves and move on and get ready for the next game." It came on the back of a dismal return to Premier League action on Saturday, when Tuchel suffered his first defeat as Chelsea boss at the hands of relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion.

Despite taking an early lead at Stamford Bridge, Tuchel saw his side collapse after Thiago Silva's sending off and went on to concede five goals in a 5-2 drubbing. However, thanks to Tottenham Hotspur dropping points against Newcastle United on Sunday, Chelsea remain in the Champions League spots, at least until West Ham United take on Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night.
