Reece James May Not Play Against West Ham Due To Hamstring Injury

Reece James May Not Play Against West Ham Due To Hamstring Injury

Chelsea captain, Reece James would be sidelined for a few weeks and he would not play against West Ham due to a hamstring injury. 

Mauricio Pochettino confirmed the news at his press conference on Friday but backed his skipper to return stronger. 

James got his hamstring injury during training on Friday and is not cleared to compete. 

“It’s a hamstring. It’s not a few days, a few weeks maybe.

“I think it’s a sad moment because he’s our captain, he was so excited to be the captain, full of energy. We are going to assess him day by day.

“He is going to come back stronger than he was,” Pochettino said. 

The full-back missed a substantial amount of last season with hamstring, knee and thigh problems. Now, he is out with another hamstring injury. 

Pochettino would have a tough tactical decision to make after losing Christopher Nkunku and Wesley Fofana to long-term injuries.

Speaking on his podcast, Gary Neville warned about the potential damage an injury to James or fellow full-back Ben Chilwell could do to Chelsea’s campaign this season.

“What we’ve seen is that Chelsea have fantastic wing-backs, but they’ve both gone off in the game. First game of the season. That will destroy Pochettino’s plans.”

“If you’re going to play wing-backs they have to be outstanding players of high quality, who attack like wingers and defend like full-backs, and they have that. But the big question mark is if those two can stay fit.”
