According to The Sun, Chelsea right-back Reece James was taught a lesson by Bayern Munich during the 3-0 defeat to the Germans.

“Nicknamed ‘The Beast’ by his pal for that impressive physique, uncompromising tackling, precision crossing and sheer will-to-win, Chelsea’s talented defender was more like a tranquilized rhino,” according to The Sun.

“It is such a shame that one of Chelsea’s brightest and youngest prospects, even by this squad’s boyish standards, was unable to showcase his full range of talents.

“And more than anything, he did not look like he was having much fun out there.

“Lampard makes a lot of James’ attributes, that he can play anywhere on the right, or even in central midfield if asked.

“The lad can certainly cross a ball and shoot, but we saw little of that last night.

“The wing-back role given to James was the wrong one because he was unable to display any of his main attributes.

“The fact all three Bayern goals, and the vast majority of their many chances at goal, came from down Chelsea’s right merely puts the statistical tin hat on a bad night which hopefully will not dent the boy’s confidence for too long.”
