'Everyone can see': Reece James insists one of his Chelsea teammates has been brilliant for three years now

Reece James has leaped to the defence of Chelsea teammate Mason Mount in an interview for HaytersTV.

The season so far has mostly been a rough one for the reigning Blues player of the year, with him yet to find the net despite starting nearly every game.

This has left him prone to criticism in the media, with him taking a number of hits in the media.

This has of course been a result of the high standards he has set himself over the last few years, and it feels like it will only take one really positive performance to kickstart his season.

This could have come last night however. Following his introduction from the bench, his impact completely turned the game around for England, as they went from 2-0 down to 3-2 up in a mad 10 minute spell against Germany.

The 23-year old smashed home the equaliser, before Chelsea man Kai Havertz got his second of the night to see the game end 3-3.

After the performance, James has claimed that what everyone saw tonight is only what they’ve been seeing for three years now.

He said: “I don’t really have to talk too much about Mason. The last three years everyone can see how good he is and what he provides.

“Whenever he gets a chance he likes to bring the best he can and provide for the team.”

Blues fans will now be hoping Mount’s sensational cameo leads to an upturn in his form for club, with them desperately looking for some consistency this campaign.

It is worth remembering that he produced arguably his best performance of the season in Graham Potter’s first game in charge before the international break too, leaning into suggestions that he is on his way to his best form.
