'What a player': Jamie O'Hara raves about 'unbelievable' Chelsea star live on air

Jamie O’Hara has heaped praise on Chelsea star Reece James live on TalkSPORT (13/12; 8:42), following his performance against Leeds.

The Blues left it late to beat Marcelo Bielsa’s team. Jorginho’s two penalties proved decisive with the second coming deep into stoppage time.

James has been bang in form for Chelsea this season and he was once again impressive against Leeds at Stamford Bridge.

The England man has scored five goals and claimed five assists from his position at right wing-back. He has really grown under Thomas Tuchel and is now an important part of his successful team.

James was cautioned during Saturday’s game but that didn’t stop O’Hara from raving about him.

He explained on-air that it was the first time he had seen him playing live and it’s fair to say he was impressed.

O’Hara told TalkSPORT: “Reece James live by the way. What a player. He’s unbelievable.”

James has come of age during 2021/22 and he’s now an established member of the first team under Tuchel.

Chelsea have some massive fixtures on the horizon and they will hope that James can continue firing for the foreseeable.

Exciting: James is a future Chelsea star

The 22-year-old has bags of talent and he looks set for a ridiculously bright future for club and country.

James is playing week in and week out for the Champions of Europe and surely it won’t be long before he’s a regular starter for England.

Gareth Southgate does have options at right-back but not picking James is quickly becoming impossible.

Chelsea were perhaps fortunate to beat Leeds at the weekend but they did escape with three points to their name.

Reinforcements will perhaps be sought in January but one area where Chelsea are supremely strong on the right-hand side.
