THE BIGGER PICTURE: James' goal put Chelsea 2-1 up against Spurs, as the West London side seek to strengthen their position at the top of the WSL. It's the 21-year-old's fourth goal in nine league matches this season.
WHAT NEXT FOR JAMES? Since signing from Manchester United in the summer of 2021, the Chelsea forward has been tearing it up for Emma Hayes' side. Hailed by brother Reece as "the best women's footballer in the world", she's a seriously exciting young talent with a bright future.
