Frank Lampard and the Chelsea faithful were left with no doubt after the club’s 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace that Reece James is quite a player, and is more than ready to push for a first team place.
 
Quoted in the Metro, the Chelsea boss reflected on 19-year-old right-back’s future and where he could be playing in a Blues shirt over the coming seasons;
 
Right-back would be his favoured position.”
 
Whether it be there, right wing-back or right of a three. As he’s coming into the team, you’d see him there but he does have that all-round game that he could handle playing centrally in midfield if needs be.”
 
At the moment we’ve got good players in there who are used to playing in there anyway, but he could always do that as he matures through his career.”
 
Reece James had an outstanding loan-spell with Wigan last season, rewarded with the honour of being named in the Championship Team of the Season.
 
Blues fans will likely see a lot more of James after this past weekend, with the Englishman having played nine of Chelsea’s games in all competitions so far this season.
