Chelsea duo praised for their growing partnership

Chelsea beat Leicester City 2-1 over the weekend.

The Blues’ summer signing Raheem Sterling scored a brace as Chelsea beat Brendan Rodgers’s men despite being down to 10 players.

Pundit Jermaine Jenas believes both Sterling and James have been developing a good partnership.

Jenas said: “Reece James and Raheem Sterling were sensational. I think Reece James has probably been Chelsea’s best player since the start of the season.

“He started this game in the same vein, just quality and playing with confidence.

“They (James and Sterling) are developing a really nice partnership.”

He further went on to analyse Sterling’s impact at the Stamford Bridge.

“I love this from Raheem. It is what people don’t see. He makes one run, realises that is not the one, makes another run and think ‘the space is here now’ and this is the work that goes unnoticed for a lot of strikers or forwards.

“He puts in that work and he earns that bit of luck to get his goal. It is how he scores a lot of his goals.”
