Chelsea have confirmed that Reece James is back in training ahead of this weekend’s clash with London rivals Fulham – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter are really excited by the update. 

The 21-year-old has missed the last three games in all competitions due to a combination of knee and hamstring issues. But the Blues defender is in contention for the Premier League fixture on Saturday away to Fulham.

Chelsea shared pictures on their official website on Wednesday showing James back in training at Cobham. It is claimed that the England international hopes to feature in the upcoming fixture.

A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media have stressed the importance of James’ imminent return.

The youngster is a superb talent to come out of the academy and has managed to cement his position as the first-choice right-back under manager Frank Lampard, despite competing with club captain Cesar Azpilicueta for the role. 

His game is improving defensively, but more notably he’s one of the team’s great offensive threat.

The attack-minded full-back is so creative with his crosses from the right flank and everyone is excited to see his partnership develop with winger Hakim Ziyech.

Here are some Blues fans discussing James:
