Chelsea right-back Reece James is not looking his best tonight and many Blues fans are concerned despite their team leading Crystal Palace 2-1 at half time.

Frank Lampard’s side went 2-0 up thanks to goals from Olivier Giroud and Christian Pulisic, but a screamer from Wilfried Zaha has allowed the home side back into the game.
