Bournemouth scored twice in 4 minutes against Frank Lampard’s Chelsea, but a Marcos Alonso brace saved the Blues from defeat. But what did the fans make of their clubs’ performances?
Marcos Alonso opened the scoring after 33 minutes by thumping in a rebound from close range.

However, after the half time break things took a turn for the worse for the Blues, with Jefferson Lerma scoring an equaliser in the 54th minute:

Within 4 minutes Bournemouth had found the net again, with Josh King putting the Cherries on top:
Josh King's first goal since November. So it had to come against us. 😀

This temporarily excited Man United fans too:
Josh King scores to put Bournemouth ahead against Chelsea. A big goal for United too. United pulled the plug on that Josh King deal for him to help us in our top 4 battle down the line. You love to see it.

But Alonso wasn’t finished, and headed home an equaliser after another rebounded effort on goal:
What happened to this Alonso guy all of a sudden?

Marcos Alonso really is our best striker. 3 goals in 2 games, Lampard better start him there for the next game

But Alonso didn’t manage a hat-trick and the teams had to settle for a draw. Both sets of fans felt that they could’ve bagged a win on another day.
