When Reece James is ‘likely’ to make his first senior Chelsea appearance

Chelsea academy graduate Reece James has been at the club since 2006 and he is finally gearing up for his first senior appearance for the club.

Having been out injured since the start of the summer, he has missed Chelsea’s pre-season campaign and their stuttering start to the Premier League.

Their is excitement building for his return to the field of play as the 19-year old has been stepping up his training.

Having yet to see him as a senior Chelsea player, Blues supporters won’t have to wait much longer to see him make his debut.

According to Goal reporter Nizaar Kinsella, James is likely to make his first start for the club this month against Grimsby Town in the Carabao Cup Third round.

The former Wigan Athletic loan player is expected to challenge Cesar Azpilicueta for that starting right back role, and he’s already in a good position to do so after an impressive first season in men’s football last year.
