Reece James’s crossing, Callum Hudson-Odoi’s finishing and Chelsea showing some fighting spirit

Reece James’s crossing

Watching the 20-year-old whipping in crosses from the right will remind a lot of people of David Beckham.

The pace, curl and accuracy of his balls into the box are just sensational and it adds an absolute weapon to the Blues.

The cross into the box for Tammy Abraham’s finish was sensational. Not just the accuracy, but the fact he had been forced to the byline and was under pressure, but still managed to dig out the perfect cross was so impressive.

“He’s got a great, great delivery of cross, and more than that. He’s good on the ball, and he’s physically so good as well, and he’s so young, so this is just the start for him,” Frank Lampard said.

“If I want to get it right then they have to join in and be an attacking threat. And he certainly is for us, he’s a big weapon at the minute that we have to use well.

“We have to anticipate those crosses now, because they are coming in with a lot on them, there’s a lot of juice on those crosses now.

“And we have to be ready to anticipate and get across people, and make goals like we did with the Tammy one today.”

There are elements to his game that have to improve. His first action of the game was to give away the ball and then a free-kick which gave Burnley a good chance.

However, he possesses so much talent and potential that there is no doubt the excitement is fully justified.
