Loads of Chelsea fans are drooling over the display of Reece James, after the English starlet produced another fine performance against Tottenham on Saturday.
Chelsea ensured they will stay in the top four for at least another week with a huge result at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, cruising past Spurs with more ease than the 2-1 scoreline suggests. The visitors’ late consolation goal will certainly infuriate the Blues defenders who lost out on their clean sheet, but that hasn’t stopped fans from fawning over the display of right-back James.
The 20 year-old started at wing-back in front of Cesar Azpilicueta and completely dominated the right flank, stifling Lucas Moura and Ben Davies all afternoon. The £13.5m-rated (Transfermarkt) prodigy made two tackles, two clearances and one interception, per Sofascore, while also completing 87% of his passes.
You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below, where fans hailed the youngster as a ‘beast’ and ‘tank’…
Reece James IS the truth. Top blues were right the whole time. Got the defensive ability of AWB and the attacking of Trent
