Chelsea defender Reece James has described Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Arsenal on Sunday as very special.

James supplied the assist for Romelu Lukaku’s opener before scoring Chelsea’s second.

“It’s obviously great to score for my club against such tough opposition (Arsenal), and to help the team to win is a great feeling,” James said.

“We started so well and so sharply, got the two fast goals early on and that helped settle the game down.

“We knew it was going to be a hard place to come with their (Arsenal’s) fans back in the stadium.

“Even though the start of the season is always hard to get going, we did really well to get the away win. It’s a massive derby against a very big rival, so to get three points was very special.”
