Chelsea youngster Reece James has credited the Blues new signings Thiago Silva and Hakim Ziyech with helping him to improve his overall game.

James has made overall 9 appearances during this season in which he has scored one goal and provided 2 assists.

“Thiago has brought a lot of experience,” James told The Athletic, as quoted by Metro.

“I have played alongside him a few times now. He has helped me a lot. You can see straight away why he has been one of the best in the world.

“He constantly talks to me throughout games, helping me in my positioning, directing me and making sure he is talking to me before, during and after games. It all adds up and improves performances.

“Further forward, there have been signs with Hakim in training. Ever since he arrived, we got on well. I knew I would be playing behind him.

“We clicked early and tried to build this connection in training to use this season. His left foot is just unbelievably good.”

Silva and Ziyech were among the several signings that the Blues made during the summer transfer window.
