EPL: James Reece Suffers Knee Injury Again As Chelsea Beat Bournemouth

EPL: James Reece Suffers Knee Injury Again As Chelsea Beat Bournemouth

Chelsea defender Reece James suffered a knee during the blues’ 2-0 win over Bournemouth on Tuesday.

James was withdrawn in the 53rd minute of his first game since his return from the knee injury that ruled him out of England’s World Cup squad. Chelsea coach Graham Potter said:

It’s the same area, so we are concerned.

It’s really too soon [to tell]. We’ll have to see over the next 24-48 hours. He felt something there and we will have to find out the extent of it and keep our fingers crossed.

He’s been really disappointed to miss the World Cup, of course. It was a huge blow to him. You could see today his quality and what he brings to the team. He is a world-class player. You see it from the outside but not until you work with him do you see how good he is.

He could play in any team in the world, and any team would miss him. The plan was to play 60 minutes today so now he’s disappointed, of course.

We hope it’s not as bad as it was and he can have a speedy recovery.

After three defeats in the league prior to the World Cup break, Tuesday’s victory places the Blues eighth in the table at the turn of the year, with 15 games played.

Meanwhile, Zimbabwean defender, Jordan Zemura started the match for the losing side.

Our team needs a top class right back to fill in the void left by James' recurring injury and the captain, Cezar Azpilicueta, who in all honesty, is slow losing touch due to old age. Rope in a new right back, during the January transfer window, who will be the skipper's long term replacement
