first_imgChelsea full-back Marcos Alonso insists that the referee was “100%” correct in awarding them a penalty against Newcastle United following Fabian Schar’s challengeAlonso was brought down by Schar in the penalty area with referee Paul Tierney opting to award Chelsea a spot-kick, which was put away by Eden Hazard in the 76th minute.Following substitute Joselu’s equaliser for Newcastle, Alonso then restored Chelsea’s lead when his deflected shot off DeAndre Yedlin found it’s way into the back of the net.The effort was officially named as an own goal by Yedlin.“Whether they give it to me or as an own-goal, I am very happy for the three points and I am looking forward to the next one now,” Alonso told the club website.As for whether or not referee Tierney made the right call, he said: “It was a penalty, 100 per cent,”“I am not a player that goes down easily and if I go down, it is because it was a penalty and it was good that Hazard put it in.”3 wins out of 3!
