Of the three, Alonso has a slight advantage. The Spaniard arrived at Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2016, meaning he had a season with a certain centre-back in John Terry before the Englishman moved to Aston Villa.
Alonso admitted that he would have loved to play with him when he was at his peak. “I was thinking. [Gianfranco] Zola too, and perhaps Gus Poit.”
James wasted little time with his first response:[Didier] Drogba.”
We can picture it now, James whipping a flawless cross onto the head of Chelsea’s greatest striker of the Premier League era. Great.

He named Michael Essien as his second choice, and after a gentle reminder from Werner about who calls the shots at the Bridge, James selected Frank Lampard as his third dream partner. .
As for Werner, he came prepared. Lampard and Drogba were both in his top three, and were joined by German legend Michael Ball, who formed a dominant partnership with the current boss between 2006 and 2010.
However, the conversation is not about football. Werner revealed himself to be a secret Harry Styles fan and Alonso admitted to being caught up in the hysteria of documentaries about the Tiger King after the Premier League season was postponed.
