Chelsea Defender Reece James Makes Admission About Liverpool Right-Back Trent Alexander-Arnold

Chelsea full-back Reece James has been speaking whilst on duty with the England squad about his rivalry with his Liverpool counterpart for club and country, Trent Alexander-Arnold.

England are due to take on Albania at Wembley on Friday before heading off for a clash with San Marino on Monday and it will be interesting to see how Gareth Southgate chooses his full backs.

James On His England Competition.

“I think each one of us have a different style of play.”

“Trent’s obviously been at the top for quite a few years now and obviously Kyle Walker as well. The competition’s very tough and there’s obviously other full-backs that are not here as well that are also at a very good level."

“I’m competing with obviously very good players, so it’s quite tough and we just have to keep pushing each other.”
