Chelsea have started the 2019/20 campaign in reasonable form to rise to seventh in the Premier League table whilst progressing to the last 16 of the Carabao Cup.
Frank Lampard’s side will be looking to build on their promising start in tonight’s clash against Lille, but some of the club’s fanbase are loving the form of academy prospect Reece James, with some even backing the 19-year-old to take club captain Cesar Azpilicueta’s place in the starting XI.
Reece impressed whilst on loan at Wigan Athletic in the 2018/19 campaign, and some of the club’s fanbase have been responding to comments from Azpilicueta the possibility of James earning a starting berth under Lampard. Check out some of the best reactions below.
The skipper says he isn’t threatened by the possibility of Reece James replacing him in the side. ‘I am here to support him the same way I support all the young lads. Hopefully he can be a very important player. We have great quality and Reece is one of them.’ #LOSCCHE

If Azpi doesn’t improve his game, Reece James wil possibly put him to d bench.
