Lauren moved from Manchester United women last summer to Chelsea, where she has since been handed the number 10 jersey by Emma Hayes.

While Reece is a right-back, probably the best in the world at the moment, Lauren is an offensive player, often playing as a winger.

A video compilation by a Twitter user, @TF190512, shows striking similarities between the two siblings in their style of play.

Reece's physicality is one of his biggest strongholds as he uses it to brush off opponents. The same can be said about Lauren, who is not afraid to throw herself at opponents as she shields the ball.

The compilation was made from Chelsea Women's shock opening day defeat to newly-promoted side Liverpool.

Reece James signed a long-term deal at Chelsea that saw him become the club's best-ever paid defender

Sports Brief had earlier reported that Chelsea star Reece James has committed his long-term future with the Blues after the English wingback penned a new five-year contract, with the option of an extra one.

Talks over a contract renewal have been ongoing for weeks now, with the fresh development ending speculations on a possible exit.

The new deal will see the 22-year-old pocket a massive £ 250,000 a week, making him the highest-paid defender in the history of Chelsea.
