Manchester City star Kyle Walker has opened up about fellow Chelsea player Reece James having another good season.
After a slow start, the 22-year-old slowly got back on his feet and most recently scored in his side’s 3-0 Champions League win over AC Milan.
Walker, his England team-mate, praised James, calling him “incredible”. Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, he said (via A Stamford Bridge Too Far):
“Can’t believe it. He’s incredible. Just his personality and how he behaves in the place. The sky’s the limit for him. I think we can see what he’s achieved so far in his career and he’s still young. “
Last season, James has claimed five goals and nine assists from 26 Premier League appearances to be one of the best right-backs in Europe’s top leagues.
He has become a key figure at Chelsea, bringing a new dimension to attack with his creativity and offensive flair.
He and Walker are vying for a place at right-back in Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions squad but both are currently doubtful for the 2022 FIFA World Cup through injury.
James hobbled away with a wobble in the second half of Chelsea’s 2-0 win over AC Milan earlier this week and will see a specialist this weekend.
Walker suffered a groin injury during the Manchester derby earlier this month and underwent successful surgery but could be sidelined.
Chelsea are coming into their own under Graham Potter
After a slow start to the 2022-23 season, Chelsea are beginning to hold their own lately, winning their last four games in all competitions while conceding just once.
During that run, the Blues also defeated reigning Serie A champions AC Milan in the Champions League group stage, home and away, by a 5–0 aggregate score.
Summer signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored in both games as he shows signs of settling in London.
More notably, the Blues’ defense has also improved, keeping a clean sheet in their last three games while Graham Potter’s side are finding form. They play Aston Villa at Villa Park in the league on Sunday.
