James: We had enough chances to put the game to bed

Reece James was the outstanding performer at Old Trafford last night and post-match he assessed whether it is two points dropped or one gained, his own personal performance and also whether he is disappointed he didn’t find the back of the net himself.

The Blues were unfortunate not to travel back to the capital with all three points and further stake our claim for third spot in the Premier League after dominating large spells of the match.

Chelsea attempted 21 shots in Manchester – four of which came from wing-back James – as we looked to continue some fine away form under Thomas Tuchel.

Only three opposition sides have managed 20 or more shots in a Premier League game at Old Trafford since the 2016/17 season (Spurs and Watford being the other two), and James lamented our missed opportunities when he spoke after the match.

‘We came here to win and had enough chances to put the game to bed in the first half, but we didn’t take them. We scored and then they got one soon after,’ he said.

‘We had more chances in the second half but again we didn’t take them. They’re a great side and they managed to take two points from us today.’
