I’ve banged the drum for him for so long’: Joe Cole highlights another Chelsea hero from Norwich win
“I’ve been banging the drum for Reece James for so long,” ex-Chelsea winger Joe Cole told BT Sport after the Blues’ 7-0 win over Norwich.
“He’s got so much more to offer than he shows as well.
“He can really push anyone in that right-back slot.”
This was the first full match for James for a month after he recovered from an ankle injury – and it appears that he returned well ahead of the schedule, too.
The 21-year-old was not only dominant at the back but also scored the Blues’ third goal of the game just before the break, beating Tim Krul with an elegant dink.
