Last season it was Bradley Dack vs Nick Powell. Now it’s Reece James vs Max Aarons. James is the right answer by the way, not that I’m biased in any way being a Wigan fan.
Both are very good young English talents. Considering neither had played a first-team match before this season, they’ve had exceptional seasons. Aarons winning the league with Norwich and being named in EFL team of the season. While James won every end of the season award at Wigan and is expected to be in Chelsea’s first-team squad when he returns from injury.
Lets take a look at both…..
I was lucky enough to watch James last season. He’s the best player I’ve ever seen at Wigan. A player that just oozes class and makes the game look so simple. Signed as a reserve right-back, left after playing the majority of the season in central midfield, and bossing most Championship midfielders. Strength, pace, set-pieces, passing, shooting, tackling, brilliant attitude – he’s got it all.
Unfortunately, I’ve not seen as much of Aarons. Although, from what I have seen, he’s a top player. A real modern day full-back who is brilliant attacking-wise, however also very strong defensively.
The youngster scored twice, assisting six and is attracting serious interest from Man United. On the subject, England are blessed with some ridiculous right backs: Trent Alexander Arnold, Max Aarons, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Reece James, even throw Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier into the mix.
Who gets your vote…
