Chelsea youngster Reece James has been compared to David Beckham after another fine showing for the Blues.

"I mention Beckham because the quality of crossing that we see most weeks from Reece James reminds me of his level."

"Think of David Beckham at his best, his crossing was his finest attribute by far, and suddenly you realise that being brilliant at one particular skill can get you a very long way in the game.

James has started and finished the last three Chelsea games, capping a 3-0 home win over Burnley with his second assist of the season with a whipped cross for Tammy Abraham to head home.

It is the latest standout moment in a breakthrough season for James at Stamford Bridge, adding to his 11 league appearances with seven more across domestic and European cup competitions.

"One skill that looks much easier than it first appears is sending in a vicious cross at pace, with perfect direction while on the run," former player Pat Nevin wrote for the club's official website.

He adds: "Reece is extraordinary in this area but looking at his performances of late it is becoming very clear that he is long away from being a one-trick pony.
