Premier League legend Alan Shearer has been impressed with the recent form of Chelsea’s right wing-back Reece James.

James broke into the team in 2019 under Frank Lampard, and has grown from strength to strength ever since.

The 21-year-old has improved massively this season and has been in on the goals, with four goals and three assists in 11 games in all competitions this season.

Shearer included Reece James in his Team of the Week and admitted that he’s becoming a potent threat in attack.

“Two outstanding goals from the Chelsea right-back, who is becoming a potent threat in attack. He didn’t have to defend much in the 3-0 victory at Newcastle United,” he wrote.

Shearer also made room for Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher who’s having an amazing time on loan with Crystal Palace.

He said of Gallagher: “Gallagher continues to look very comfortable at this level. The loanee from Chelsea scored a great goal and bossed the midfield.”
