Chelsea news: Reece James Alternatives as Gallagher waxes lyrical on Graham Potter

Reece James alternatives

Chelsea will be without their talisman on the wing, Reece James, when they travel to Villa Park tomorrow. James has been the most consistent performer and influential player for the blues, and his absence will be felt by Potter.

Potter, however, has some capable replacements. Ruben Loftus Cheek has put on a fantastic performance under the new coach, and his versatility has been his greatest asset. He has been excellent in a variety of roles, and he has a good chance of filling in for Reece James, though Azpilicueta is more of a natural fullback.

Gallagher llyrical on Potter

Conor, on the other hand, is upbeat about his resurrected hopes under Graham Potter and has lavished praise on the English coach. Despite a stellar season at Selhurst Park, Thomus Tuchel was skeptical that Gallagher would add much value to his squad.

As a result, Gallagher was used sparingly and was frequently deployed in deep midfield, a position in which the English star was ineffective. The arrival of the potter, however, has changed his fortunes, and he is now excited. Everyone was waiting for the gaffer to arrive "Gallagher explained to Sky Sports News.

"His previous jobs demonstrated that he was a brilliant manager. Everyone on the team is ecstatic. We're off to a good start, and hopefully we can keep it up."
