Chelsea right-back Reece James is in sensational form at the moment. The Chelsea Academy product produced a man of the match performance against Burnley at the weekend, setting up Chelsea's second goal and Tammy Abraham's lone goal in the encounter.

Speaking to chelseafc.com, Abraham praised Reece and backed him to earn senior England call-up in the future.

“He was fantastic, our man of the match against Burnley. He defended well, attacked well and I could have scored another from one of his crosses,” he said.

“I always know where he's putting the ball because we talk about it in training and every day in the changing room he sits beside me. I'm sure he'll be a bit mad that I didn't get him more assists but I've just got to be in the right places at the right time.

“I believe in him and the players believe in him as well. As long as he keeps performing, he'll be knocking on the door of Gareth Southgate.”
