Alex has spoken of the fight for first team places at the club in defence after the arrival of David Luiz and has revealed that he intends to stay and fight for his place and to earn a new contract. Being 28 Alex considers himself one of the experienced players at the club and it's good to hear him speak positively of the situation at Chelsea now. He said:
"Sometimes, it's difficult for the coach to have so many players to choose from, but it's also nice for him to have this problem. He always has the option to have a strong defence and, even though it's difficult for the players who miss out, we all understand the situation. Everyone wants to play every game, but it's no problem.

I like this club and I'm very happy to be at Chelsea. I feel like one of the experienced players now. Soon, I will have been here for four years and I'm 28, so there is still more to come.

I want to stay here for as long as my contract has to run. Then I can complete the 200 appearances... maybe 300 or even 400. But 500? I think that's going to be difficult."

I have to say Alex is immense and we have really missed him at times this season when things were not going well. Ok, Luiz has come in and done well even though at times he makes the odd mistake here and there. The thing with Alex is he is right, at 28 he has experience and has experienced big big games at the club. I just wonder if maybe just maybe, we could see Luiz forced out wide right next season in a fight with Ivanovic?

One thing he is spot on though, Chelsea now have plenty of options at the back and have in my view the strongest defence in the league.
