EPL: You’ve To Be Patient – Paul Merson Urges Chelsea Star

Arsenal legend, Paul Merson has urged Reece James to be patient and not to rush his injury recovery after the Chelsea captain underwent hamstring surgery.

James has been plagued by injuries this season.

The defender has played just 451 minutes of football for Chelsea.

He is now set to be sidelined again for up to four months after he limped off during Chelsea’s defeat at Everton earlier in December.

“It is rather unfortunate that one of [Chelsea’s] best players, Reece James, is now sidelined for a long time again,” Merson told Sportskeeda.

“It is a bit of an issue at this point. He seems to be rushing himself back because he clearly loves playing football.

“But with these injuries, one has to be patient. I feel for the guy, he is a very good footballer too. But he has to show some patience if he is to avoid these constant injury problems.”
