Chelsea right-back Reece James has revealed how he managed to break into the first team this season.

Reece, who spent last season on loan at Championship side, Wigan Athletic told Chelsea website that he didn't expect to be a regular this early after coming back from a loan spell and got a bad injury before the start of the season.

James said: “I was injured coming off the back-end of last season and as I started to pick up and play games, everything has happened so fast.

“It took me by surprise – I knew I was going to be in and around it but I didn’t think I’d be this involved.

“Frank is a club legend and to this day everyone still looks up to him. He’s got a lot of advice to give to all of us because he played at the highest level so you have to listen to him.

“He’s had a big impact ever since I got back fit. He’s told me what I’m doing well and where he still thinks I can get better.

“I’m thankful that everyone believes in me here. I just want to play, give it my all and repay everyone.”

Reece James has been one of Chelsea's best players in recent matches.
