Ben Foster Lauds Reece James: The Defensive Phenomenon Lighting Up Chelsea

Chelsea are on a run in the Premier league with 3 consecutive wins and one player has caught the attention of former English goalkeeper Ben Foster. Reece James has left Ben Foster in awe and in shock with his commendable performance on the pitch.

Returning after a long break due to a series of injuries, James made his presence felt as he provided an assist for the winning goal soon after subbing on in the 3-2 against Nottingham Forest. On his YouTube channel, Foster had nothing but admiration for the right back and he even claimed that Reece James was the best right back he has ever seen play.

The admiration for James is due to his ability of managing both the defensive duties and also providing attacking output for the team. James ability to control, guide, set the tempo of the game, coupled with his pace and power makes him one of the most enticing players on the pitch. Weather to nullify the opposition’s attack or help Chelsea in their attack, Reece James has shown the skills and maturity way ahead of his age.

Furthermore, James’s duties not only lie in the defensive output for Chelsea. His contributions in the final third, evident in his impressive statistics for chances created per 90 minutes, underscore his versatility and impact going forward. Despite the low number of matches played this season because of injuries, James is amongst the top chance creators for Chelsea. This shows the impact Reece James has on the team.

The only hurdle for James has been his injuries which has hampered his season quite a lot, affecting him to stay consistent. As Chelsea continue their march for European football in the last two match against Brighton and Bournemouth, eyes are on James to see if he can overcome the injuries and help the team to secure the European competition.
