Reece James has named the Chelsea player who has influenced him the most this season.

The 21-year-old has established himself as one of the Blues key players since returning from a year-long loan with Wigan. However, despite his impressive displays, he is still young and has a lot of things to learn.

And speaking to The BBC about the player that helped him to grow, James named Thiago Silva.

“Thiago Silva influenced my career the most this season, he is well experienced and has played up the top of the game,” he said.

“He takes me under his wing at training and coaches me, tells me where I could do better and what I am doing well.”
