Reece James has already proved he can impress in the Championship after a successful stint with Wigan and, now, these Chelsea fans want him to start for the Blues.
Should Reece James start over Cesar Azpilicueta?
The 19-year-old had an extremely noteworthy season on loan with Latics last year, making 45 appearances, scoring three goals, three assists and winning the Player of the Year accolade.
Now, James is preparing to take the starting full-back at Stamford Bridge after an impressive stint in the second tier -with many admirers online already willing him on to do so.
The young defender already has a League Cup goal and an hour in the Champions League under his belt, with some Blues supporters recommending he take the leap up into a more integral squad role.
The statistics speak for themselves, with the Englishman amassing a pass success rate of 86% and winning four aerial duels – according to WhoScored.com -numbers that any defender would surely be proud of.
Chelsea supporters everywhere recognise his potential, made evident by his latest Twitter post receiving dozens of supportive replies, including one fan who compared him to Branislav Ivanovic.
