Reece James has six goals and eight assists this season, having a great campaign with Chelsea.
Ex-Manchester United man Rio Ferdinand has backed the right-back to win the Premier League Young Player of the Season award: “I just think the importance that he has in this team when he doesn’t play in that team now they miss him massively. He has a massive impact.
“I watched him at Old Trafford the other day. He was treating some United players like boys. That’s how good he is, how comfortable he looks now.
“I’ve seen him on loan at Wigan playing center-back, playing in midfield. He’s so versatile. His passing range is off the charts.
“Just his all-around general play, the composure, the physicality, his defending one-v-one. I think he’s got everything.”
Reece is a very complete right-back, effective both at going forward and defending. His speed, physicality, and passing range make him one of the best players in the world at his position.
