Man of the Match Chelsea vs AC Milan: Reece James - Chelsea's trident almost struggled to penetrate AC Milan's defense in Week 3 of Group E of the 2022/2023 Champions League. Luckily there was Reece James who helped a lot in Chelsea's 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge, Thursday (6/10/2022) early morning hrs.

Without James, Chelsea's second and third goals would not have been created. Because in those two goals, James each scored an assist and a goal. While the first goal was born from the chaos of a corner kick.

James took advantage of the absence of Theo Hernandez on the left side of AC Milan's defense. Fode Ballo, who replaced him, struggled to overcome James, both in attack and defense.

The 22-year-old is free to attack from the right wing. Like when James crossed for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and when he executed a shot from a tight angle to the near post.

James looked flawless for 90 minutes. He plays well in attack, and can be solid defensively. In other words, it is complete.
Apart from an unbalanced opponent on the same side, James is indeed the focus of the team. The proof, he became a player who touched the ball a lot (99) of the 22 players on the field.
The trust that became the focus of the team was completely paid off by him in the match. He repeatedly did a combination of play on the right wing and repeatedly secured the right side of the Chelsea defense.
