Right wing-back Reece James was in top form for Chelsea in the 2-1 victory over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Reece James made life difficult for Benjamin Mendy and played a huge role in Chelsea’s comeback.

His sister, Lauren, who plays for the Manchester United women’s team, was pleased with Reece James performance, and wrote on social media ‘Proud Sista’.

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer was also full of praise for Reece James following his performance against Manchester City on Saturday.

“The reason why Chelsea were better is that they got Alonso and James higher up the pitch, they were more involved,” Shearer told BBC’s Match of the Day.

“Reece James was magnificent in the second half, he gave [Benjamin] Mendy a horrid time. His pace and quality got Chelsea up the pitch.

“They couldn’t handle him. It was three or four occasions that he did that in the second half. He pulled everyone else up with him.

“Chelsea were prepared to gamble and that was the big difference, it’s a big win for them.”
