Ben Chilwell and Reece James will be the future of Chelsea’s fullback position for a long time, as they are currently age 23 and 20 respectively.

Reece James broke through from the club’s academy, while Chilwell was signed up for £50m during the summer transfer window.

The duo have been in spectacular form this season, with James earning lots of praise.

Meanwhile, Ben Chilwell who has trained with James, has revealed his shock that Reece James is this strong.

“I didn’t know until I came here how strong Reece actually was and how well he uses his body when he’s defending,” Chilwell said in a newly released video that was recored last weekend.

“For someone who’s only 20 years old the maturity that he shows when he defends he is an unbelievable talent. Everyone likes to talk about how good he is going forward, but defensively he’s top as well.”
