The Blues defender Reece James has acknowledged his team face a difficult task against Liverpool this week.

The Blues have been lights out in the Premier League so far, defeating Crystal Palace and local rivals Arsenal.

But so have Liverpool, and James knows his team must be at their best for the blockbuster clash at Anfield.

Liverpool have been up there at the top of the Premier League for the last few seasons so we know going there will be a very tough game,” James told the Chelsea website.

“We need to prepare right and bring the same intensity as today into that game but our team is very strong. We have a number of top players in each position so when one top player comes off, there’s another one replacing them, which keeps the competition really high.

“I wouldn’t say there’s any pressure on us right now. We have to take it game by game but obviously our aim is to win every week. Everybody here is ambitious and wants to win the title but we just have to take things slowly right now.”
