Tottenham left-back Ryan Sessegnon says he knows the weaknesses of Chelsea right-back Reece James. Sessegnon came through Fulham’s academy, where a dislike for Chelsea is already embedded from the start.
‘Coming through at Fulham it’s in your brain to dislike Chelsea so this game is extra-special for me.’
The 22-year-old player is a friend of Reece James. They were part of the England U17 national team, which eventually won the 2017 European Championship.
In an interview with the Guardian, the young Englishman said he was likely aware of the Chelsea player’s obvious weaknesses and would warn his teammates.
‘I think I know his [Reece James] weaknesses as well but I won’t say too much now. He’s a great player, what he’s done for Chelsea and England has been very good, so you can always look at that and it inspires you.’
