(Video) Chelsea’s Reece James punishes Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka for late challenge with hilarious shove to the floor

Posted by

Chelsea defender Reece James was not best pleased with a bit of afters from Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka during the game at the Emirates on Sunday.

James was one of the stars of the show at the weekend, with his stellar display, during which he notched a goal and assist, only bettered by the dominant and unplayable Romelu Lukaku.

The England right-back looked pumped full of energy throughout the contest, with his close ties to Chelsea likely to have sparked his hatred for all things Arsenal.

That hatred shone through after Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka attempted to give James a nudge after the ball had already been played. Look at what he did next…

That is one of the brilliant things about Reece James – his aggression.

The 21-year-old is one of the strongest players in the Premier League and he knows exactly when and how to use that strength to give him a psychological edge over his opponents.

Xhaka must have been picking himself up off of the grass feeling more than a little bit silly…
