Chelsea youngster Reece James has done an impressive job so far this season. The 21-year-old has ousted skipper Cesar Azpilicueta as the first choice right-back, which is no mean feat.

Moreso, former Chelsea and Liverpool right-back Glen Johnson has called Reece James the best overall right-back in the league.

This is a huge call to make, considering the fact that there are so many top right-backs in the league, including Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Wan-Bissaka.

Glen Johnson believes Alexander-Arnold is better offensively and Wan-Bissaka defensively, but Reece is good in both aspects.

“I like Reece James, I like him a lot. Personally, I think he’s probably the best overall right-back there is [in the Premier League],” Johnson told Premier League Daily on Optus Sport.

“I think Trent is better going forwards and I think Wan-Bissaka is a better defender, but I think as a whole Reece James is up there.”
