Reece James’ start to the season has somewhat gone under the radar with new signings stealing all the limelight at Chelsea.
The likes of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, Thiago Silva and Edouard Mendy might be grabbing all the headlines but the miniature hulk at the back has been nothing less than stellar so far.
Reece James is now being talked about as arguably the best right-back in the league with former player Glen Johnson claiming that the Chelsea full back ‘is a better defender’ than Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold.
On a weekend when Roy Keane called City right-back Kyle Walker an ‘idiot’ and a ‘car crash’ for conceding a penalty against Liverpool, Graeme Souness labeled Reece James a ‘finished article’ after his performance in the 4-1 win against Sheffield United.
Finished article or not, the 20-year-old is making a reputation for himself with the unreal transformation he’s gone under this season.
Besides his overall display, Chelsea fans are in love with a particular attribute of his game.
No, it’ not his insane passing and crossing but his bulldog tenacity.
James is not afraid to indulge in the physical side of the game and has been seen ‘bodying’ a number of players already this season.
With the international break going on, a Chelsea fan has compiled a 29-second video of Reece James destroying everyone in his path and it is some watch.
Check it out below –
