As such, he has genuinely become a favourite among the Chelsea FC supporters and some of them have expressed their delight after another standout showing in the club’s colours.

James in an attacking point of view created three chances and that was the highest on the day for the Blues alongside Mason Mount and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Twitter Reactions:

Steven French says: “Reece James within 3 years will be one of if not the best RB in Europe. His power, pace, technique, defensive ability and those deadly crosses are for me unmatched. To think he’s only 21. Outstanding”

J5Edition says: “If Reece James doesn’t retire with 8 million assists then it’s a crime against football – His deliveries are actually illegal”.
