Chelsea right wing-back Reece James was in top form as Chelsea defeated Norwich City 7-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Reece James put in a fine display and scored a fine goal with a delightful chip over Tim Krul for Chelsea’s third goal.

Former Chelsea star Joe Cole hailed Reece James following his performance against Norwich and claimed that he has been singing the praise of the 21-year-old for a long time now.

“I’ve been banging the drum for Reece James for so long,” Joe Cole told BT Sport after the game.

“He’s got so much more to offer than he shows as well.

“He can really push anyone in that right-back slot.”
