Chelsea wing-back is the most-sold defender in FPL, as managers replace him with one of his team-mates

Fantasy Premier League managers are losing patience with Marcos Alonso (£7.1m).

The Chelsea wing-back was withdrawn before 60 minutes so missed out on a clean sheet in Saturday's win at Stoke City.

Alonso is without a goal or an assist in his last four Gameweeks and, while he has two clean sheets over that spell, is suffering sales.

He is still owned by more than a million managers, but 56,000+ have moved him out since Saturday.

It means he is the most-sold defender in the game.

Over 18,000 of those have swapped in team-mate Cesar Azpilicueta (£6.5m).

He picked up his third and fourth assists of the season on Saturday.

All four have been passes made to Morata, making them the most profitable partnership in FPL.
