The last three with Chelsea FC
3️⃣ things with the Chelsea trio. Timo Werner, Marcos Alonso and Reece James share their best and last three picks in music, sports and television.
Over the years, Chelsea have had a lot of iconic players. Choosing just three dream teammates is an almost impossible task.
Thanks to Three, 90 mins had the chance to sit down with Marcos Alonso, Reece James and Timo Werner to get a feel for the club’s long list of former stars, as part of Three’s quest to bring Chelsea fans closer to their club .
Of the trio, Alonso has a slight advantage. The Spaniard arrived at Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2016 which means he had a season alongside a certain center-back named John Terry before the Englishman moved to Aston Villa.
“I would have loved to play with him when he was in his prime,” said Alonso. “I thought about [Gianfranco] Zola too, and maybe Gus Poyet. “
James wasted little time with his first response: “[Didier] Drogba. ”
We can imagine it now, with James whipping impeccable crosses straight to the head of Chelsea’s greatest striker of the Premier League era. Sensational.
He named Michael Essien as his second pick, and after a gentle reminder from Werner on who calls the shots at the bridge, James opted for Frank Lampard as his dream third-teammate.
As for Werner, he came prepared. Lampard and Drogba were both in his top three, and they were joined by German legend Michael Ballack, who formed a dominant partnership with the current boss between 2006 and 2010.
However, the conversation isn’t just about football. Werner has turned out to be a secret Harry Styles fan and Alonso has confessed to being caught up in the hysteria surrounding the Tiger King docuseries after the Premier League season was postponed.
There is real excitement at Bridge this season. Following the arrivals of Werner, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech, Thiago Silva and Édouard Mendy this summer, Chelsea are aiming for a return to the top of the football mountain.
The Blues have already played some scintillating football this season and Lampard hopes to see that momentum continue to build up a bit further.
