This could really be the breakthrough season for Reece James especially after it was revealed that Thomas Tuchel has a soft spot for the 22-year-old in the Chelsea squad. Yesterday, he was the penalty hero for the Blues as he scored the final spot-kick to send Chelsea to the next round of the Carabao Cup.
He recently reunited with his sister Laureen James who now plays for Chelsea Women FC after successfully being signed from Manchester United. Reece James has been a huge contributor to Chelsea’s recent successes and he isn't stopping just yet because he has a lot more to fight during his tenure with the club. In a recent interview, he said that he is fully focused on helping Chelsea win the League and defend their Champions League trophy.
Chelsea’s utility player Ruben Loftus Cheek is slowly gaining positive recognition from Chelsea fans who have described him as a masterpiece in the Chelsea squad. Despite not having registered any goal involvements last night, Loftus Cheek’s performance was remarkable, to say the least. He was omnipresent on the pitch and often switched plays whenever he saw a leakage in Chelsea’s squad.
Thomas Tuchel had this to say about him, “Loftus is a hungry player who wants to prove something to the world. What you saw today was just the tip of the iceberg. He is a very talented player and one of the best products from the Chelsea Academy. The decision to give him some minutes today was very easy because he was working very hard in training and I have seen the results of his hard work today."
Kepa Arrizabalaga was the one Chelsea player who was satisfied with yesterday’s close win against Aston Villa. Kepa Arrizabalaga showed his excitement over the win by making it to the stands and celebrating together with the Chelsea fans at full time. He also went on to his Twitter account and congratulated his team for making it into the next round.
