PremierLeague-News.Com - The debate over Reece James vs Trent Alexander Arnold has rumbled on throughout the season, and it's about to get even more intense as we build up to Euro 2020
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Ashley Cole has disagreed with Alan Shearer over one particular Chelsea star. During Match of the Day on Sunday night, the BBC pundits discussed the starting XI Gareth Southgate should go with at this summer's Euro 2020. And Shearer managed to commit Chelsea star Reece James from his line-up, despite the right-back having an excellent season for the Blues.

"We didn't even talk about Reece James. Could you play three at the back with Reece playing and Trent a little bit further up the pitch? "Mount, Foden, Jadon Sancho too - so much quality there so it is going to be a headache but what a problem for Gareth to have!"
