Chelsea right back Reece James has been in amazing form this season. The 21-year-old has made the right wing-back position his own, and he’s arguable the best in the division this season.

BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks has been very impressed with the Chelsea academy product, who’s only in his second season as a Chelsea first team player.

Crooks has labelled Reece James as the most improved player in the Premier League.

“Arguably the most improved Premier League player this year,” Crooks said.

“Strong, beautifully balanced and can strike the ball brilliantly with both feet. He’s also quick and tremendously competitive.

“If he can raise his level of consistency there is no telling where this kid could end up.

“That said, under Tuchel and at a club as big as Chelsea there’s no reason for the player to go anywhere.”
