Chelsea fans laud on-loan youngster Reece James after rocket goal for Wigan; compare him to Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold

The Chelsea faithful have been keeping an increasingly close eye on Reece James as his loan spell at Wigan has progressed.

For many Blues at the beginning of the campaign, the 19-year-old was just one of the club’s numerous loanees dotted across the continent, however he’s quickly proven otherwise.

Reece James has impressed at Wigan

The right-back who can also play in midfield has been one of Wigan’s star men in the Championship this season.

During Saturday’s draw at Bristol City, he displayed his talents once again by bagging a world class opener for the Latics.

James picked up the ball at the halfway line and began a mesmerising run before stopping roughly 30 years out and hammering home a rocket long-range effort.

This latest act of inspiration went viral, with Chelsea fans going as far as to liken him to – or even claim he’s better than – Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold.
