‘World class’, ‘made Zaha look like Lingard’, these Chelsea FC fans praise emerging star after Crystal Palace win

Some Chelsea FC fans are absolutely delighted with the impact from defender Reece James during his maiden Premier League start against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The right-back was rewarded with his first-ever Premier League start on the back of a solid performance against Ajax and he made the best use of the opportunity.

Right from the beginning, James had the better of Wilfried Zaha with key interceptions and that continued over the course of the 90 minutes where the Ivorian was barely a threat for the Blues.

As a result, the west London giants won by a comfortable 2-0 scoreline and many supporters have hailed James for ending up pocketing for the entire 90 minutes.

Twitter Reactions:


With the display, James has firmly cemented his spot as a regular and that may pretty much keep Cesar Azpilicueta on the bench following the international break.

Blues boss Frank Lampard has shown that he is not afraid to play young players in the Premier League this term and he has been rewarded with none of the club graduates letting him down.

The Blues are currently fourth in the standings with 26 points. They are already nine points clear of fifth-placed Sheffield United and are on course to secure Champions League football for next season.
