Chelsea are finally looking like they are in full shift under Frank Lampard. The London Blues are scoring goals for fun and have considerably improved their defence as well.

Much of the credit for this goes to the two fullbacks in the team who have completelt’y revolutionized Chelsea. New comer Ben Chilwell is obviously been extremely good. However Reece James too has out in some brilliant performances.

In Reece James, he’s a top player,” Souness believes.“Given his age, he’s going to get better and better.

I’ve not talked about his strength, his pace, his delivery, and in terms of defending he looks like he’s got that already.

You think of the modern game, if you’re playing against this Liverpool team one of the priorities would be trying to stop Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold because the full-back in a modern game isn’t a defender first and foremost, it’s someone who can do a bit of defender but gets up the pitch and when he gets into the attacking third he can deliver on it. When you get someone who can defend then what a real bonus that is.

“I think Reece James is all of that. I think he’s got absolutely everything in his game. So for Chelsea it looks like they’ve won the lottery in the full-back positions.
