Chelsea fullback James rates Liverpool ace Mane his toughest opponent

Chelsea fullback Reece James rates Liverpool ace Sadio Mane as his toughest opponent.

While talking up England teammate and Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling, James admitted Mane was the player he found most difficult to handle.

"Everyone knows how good a player Raheem Sterling is," he admitted to reporters. “It's very hard playing against him.

“He's probably one of the best wingers in the world at this moment in time and we're going to need him for this tournament.

"Raheem Sterling is definitely up there (as the toughest) and I'd probably say (Sadio) Mane as well."
