Chelsea fans react to Reece James performance against Everton

Chelsea continued their unbeaten streak on Monday evening during the win over Everton – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter singled out youngster Reece James for his performance. 

The Blues are yet to taste defeat so far during Thomas Tuchel’s opening 11 games as manager across all competitions. 

Chelsea picked up a crucial three points in the Premier League on Monday by beating Everton 2-0 at Stamford Bridge. 

It means they strengthen their position in fourth in the league table. 

Kai Havertz’s effort on the half hour mark opened the scoring for Chelsea, albeit the last touch came off Everton defender Ben Godfrey and was credited as an own goal.

Havertz then earned his side a penalty midway through the second half after drawing a foul from Jordan Pickford, with Jorginho calmly finishing the spot-kick.

A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media were amazed by the contribution of defender James in the match.

The 21-year-old right wing-back attacked well when he could, while defensively he was strong and fans were keen to pick up on his strength. 

He may be young in age, but he’s extremely physical and makes it so difficult for defenders one-on-one.
