Lampard - Reece James is 'certainly' for Chelsea.

Reece James is a big weapon at the minute that we have to use well, says Lampard.

Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard hailed Reece James' attacking prowess following his brilliant display against Burnley on Saturday.

The Blues boss is convinced the full-back has all the attributes to make it at the top level.

"He's got a great, great delivery of cross and more than that. He's good on the ball, he's physically so good and he's so young. This is just the start for him," Lampard told a post-match news conference.

"The way I want us to play, the full-backs are going to be huge for us. If I want to get it right and get it to where I want it they have to be able to join in, they have to be an attacking threat.

"He certainly is for us. He's a big weapon at the minute that we have to use well. We have to anticipate those crosses now because they come in with a lot of juice on them.

"We have to be ready to anticipate and get across people and make goals like we did with the Tammy one."
