Leicester City talent James Justin has revealed just how much he learnt under Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell.

Chilwell was the main left-back under Brendan Rodgers, but following his £50m move to Chelsea, Justin has impressed for the Foxes.

The 22-year-old who found the net in England U21s 5-0 win over Albania, has revealed just how much help he got from Chilwell.

“I learned so much off Chilly,” Justin told reporters ahead of England Under-21s game with Albania on Tuesday night.

“From the way he plays, the way he carries himself on the pitch. We lived not too far from each other so he took me under his wing and showed me how to play the position in the Premier League.

“I hadn’t had a lot of exposure during some of last season and when I was forced into the starting line-up due to injury, he helped me quite a lot and told me to play my game. He’s been a big help. I still keep in touch with Chilly every now and then.”
