Reece James’ 2021/22

Reece James had a fantastic start to the 2021/22 campaign with Chelsea.

The right-back would start vs Arsenal and put on a starring display from the right-wing-back spot.

James scored one and assisted one as Chelsea picked up a 2-0 win over the Gunners:

However, the following game did not go as well for James. He would provide the assist for the Blues as they took the lead vs fellow Premier League title rivals, Liverpool.

But the Englishman would then be shown a red card after handling the ball in his own box. Liverpool scored the ensuing spot-kick and Chelsea were forced to settle for a point vs the Reds.

And after being left on the bench vs Tottenham last weekend, Reece James would return to the starting line-up for Chelsea on Saturday vs Manchester City.

James would once again be deployed from the right-wing-back spot and had a solid start to the game.
