Calum Hudson-Odoi stakes his claim
On the subject of shining performances, the one put in by Calum Hudson-Odoi cannot be overlooked.
Handed his first start since a failed move to Bayern Munich he impressed on many levels.
The winger offered up relief from the struggling Sarri ball. His direct running, pace, and skills provide fans with the moments they want to watch. They also give Chelsea the direct running and entertainment they are currently lacking.
A goal in this game means he now has three goals and assists in six starts. Sarri may not be convinced, but that’s the kind of form that means he soon won’t have a choice but to start the 18-year-old more often.
