Chelsea fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Leeds United and Newcastle United-linked Reece James against Crystal Palace.

James was in action for Chelsea in their Premier League game against Palace at Stamford Bridge in London on Saturday.

The 19-year-old full-back had a very good match, as he kept Palace winger Wilfried Zaha quiet and was very encouraging overall.

According to WhoScored, the teenager had a pass accuracy of 85%, took 74 touches, attempted three dribbles, and made two tackles, three interceptions and one clearance.

 

According to a recent report in The Sun, Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce wants to sign James on a loan deal in the January transfer window.

The report in the British tabloid has also claimed that Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa admires James, who was on loan at Wigan Athletic last season.

The full-back is a very talented player who can only get better in the coming months and years.
