It’s his 17th injury.
“Reece James, 23, Chelsea, has gone down with another hamstring injury on the verge of a comeback,” Nizar Kansella of the British publication Evening Standard reported on Saturday. 메이저놀이터
James is considered one of the best right-backs in the English Premier League. A product of Chelsea’s youth ranks, he made his professional debut for Wigan on loan in the 2018-19 season. The following season, he became a regular for the Blues.
His physicality allows him to dominate opposing attackers, and his speed allows him to get into the attack in a hurry. He has a powerful shot that occasionally finds the back of the net.
His continued performances have earned him a call-up to the England national team. He has 16 caps to his name.
Despite his unquestionable skills, he is too injury prone. Since his professional debut, he has suffered 16 injuries. That’s 17 if you include this latest recurrence.
He missed a lot of games this season. He has only played 24 games. Chelsea has also suffered as James continues to go down. They’re currently in 12th place in the league. They’ve been eliminated from the UEFA Champions League (UCL), English FA Cup, and Carabao Cup. Recently, the 33-year-old Cesar Aspilicueta has been filling in for James.
In September, he was touted as the future of Chelsea and signed a new six-year contract. He earns a whopping £250,000 a week.
However, he is often absent from the team, much to the displeasure of the fans. “Mauricio Pochettino, who will be taking over at Chelsea, will play James often. He needs to get his nagging injuries under control before then.”
James will miss Chelsea’s final Premier League game against Newcastle on Sept. 29.
