James Reece said to Chelsea great decision because of the shape of Liverpool's Trent Alexander Arnold



Read to the end......

Former Chelsea defender Frank Sinclair has urged Reece James to think about changing position.

The 20-year-old has impressed during his breakthrough season in the Blues' first team, having spent a successful season on loan in the Championship with Wigan last season.

He has made 20 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea so far this season, scoring twice - once in a Carabao Cup demolition of Grimsby and the other coming in a thrilling 4-4 draw with Ajax in the Champions League.

James has become Frank Lampard's first choice right-back, with captain Cesar Azpilicueta shifting over to left-back, but Sinclair believes the young defender may have to change positions to be in with a chance of getting into Gareth Southgate's Euro 2020 team.

"If I was Reece James, I might be clever and try and to start playing centre half or something because Trent Alexander is going to be a hard man to lodge out of that position the way that he’s playing at the moment," the former Blues defender told Genting Bet

"But, it’s internationals and you need world class players in every position if you want to really seriously challenge at that level. 

"So, to have someone like Reece James, who will fight for that second slot as the natural right back, that’s a good thing. You've obviously also got [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka at Man United, but I don't think he’s particularly been in great form this season.

"The thing about James Reece who do it in England squads regularly his adaptability, he can play center-half, he can play right-back, he can play midfield.

"He came back with a superb loan spell at Wigan, where for the second half of this loan spell, he played center half and was amazing in there too.

"When I talked to Jody Morris after an FA Youth Cup victory for Chelsea, just a few seasons, he discussed how good Reece James was. He said Callum Hudson-Odoi gets a lot of applause, but Reece James is simply amazing.

"So now it comes to fruition and I can see him kicking on and be in Chelsea for the next 10 years and to be a pillar. "
