Indian Blues Man of the Match - Chelsea vs Brighton

Our Indian Blues put forward their picks for Man of the Match from the win vs Brighton in the Premier League. 

Aman, Jaipur

My pick would without a doubt be Reece James. After a great start to his Chelsea career last season I was looking forward to seeing him play last night. Safe to say he did not disappoint! He performed his defensive duties really well whilst also playing exceptionally well in attack. And what a way to score your first ever Premier League goal! 

Sohan, Hyderabad

Reece James was incredible last night! Aside from his incredible goal and the corner to set up Zouma for our third goal, I thought his workrate was very impressive, both in attack and defence. He will be a key player for us this season if he can keep up this level of performance! Congratulations on your first ever Premier League goal Reece!

Reece James is undoubtedly my Man of the Match. His goal to restore our lead has to already be a contender for goal of the season! Only a really talented footballer can pull that off, and James did exactly that! He was also very solid in defence, complementing his effective attacking contributions on the night. He also got an assist to his name, setting up our third goal for Kurt Zouma. What a way to start the season!

For me Reece James was the best player on the pitch. After Trossard’s equaliser for Brighton we really needed something to settle our nerves, and Reece James delivered. That goal was such a delight to watch. He followed that up by creating the third goal for Zouma to finish the game off. What a performance!

Watching Reece James play last night was a delight. His composure, and that absolute rocket of a goal, reminded me of Alex. I really believe Reece James is going to be a player we can rely on for many years to come.
