Reece James was given a red card against Brighton on Wednesday night.

The red card to the Blues captain nearly cost the team, as Chelsea had a comfortable 2-0 lead which was nearly levelled.

The Chelsea captain kicked out at Brighton star Joao Pedro and was sent off after a VAR check with just two minutes of normal time left.

Joao Pedro had fouled Reece James, who in turn lunged at him while on the ground.

That wasn’t captain behaviour from Reece James, as Chelsea nearly lost a comfortable 2-0 lead.

James had only been on for 17 minutes before being sent off for violent conduct.

The red card now means Reece James will miss Chelsea’s last game of the season. It also means he will be suspended for four games due to it being his second offence.

Many Chelsea fans on social media feel that centre-back Trevoh Chalobah is the best candidate to become full-time captain if Reece James is stripped of the armband.

Felix: “The armband just looks right [on Chalobah].”

CFC Square: “I’ve noticed his leadership qualities coming through recently. The squad needs someone like this for next season so it’s looking more and more important we keep him”

VintageMens: “Just right, he is organized and disciplined and mature as well.”

Everest Egopija: “Sounds funny but I’d think Trevoh Chalobah will make a better captain than Reece James”
