I really feel as if this subsequent season can be make or break for Callum Hudson-Odoi at Chelsea, and sure I’m conscious of the rumours linking him away this summer time.
While this will by no means be dominated out, it’s clear that Hudson-Odoi desires to remain and make it at his boyhood membership, however to do that he’s going to must be extra accommodated.

Hudson-Odoi is a good expertise filled with potential, however he’s largely being performed out of place. What number of younger gamers are requested to do that, after which anticipated to nonetheless present their full potential each sport?
Callum has been removed from poor on the proper for me, and he has proven some indicators of actual magic. Nevertheless, if you would like the easiest out of him he have to be enjoying on the left, even when that’s the left sided ten in Thomas Tuchel’s present setup, or left wing again, he should play on the left.
He’s way more comfy, and harmful, when he’s driving at defenders on the left and has the choice to chop inside and unleash a shot, rather a lot like Eden Hazard used to take action effectively in a Chelsea shirt.
He should enhance his ending in fact, and his last ball. However I’m watching a participant final season that knew he wasn’t ever going to get a lot time to point out what he can do, and when he did, he was merely over-playing, or attempting to onerous.
Issues will come much more naturally to him if he is aware of he has the time to play, and he’s in his extra comfy left sided place.
There may be each likelihood that Chelsea promote Marcos Alonso AND Emerson Palmieri this summer time, so I consider Hudson-Odoi is usually a good backup option to Ben Chilwell at left wing again, if we proceed to play that setup.
His defending has improved, and his monitoring again and work price is getting a lot, a lot better as effectively. I feel if he has a while to be taught and be coached the left wing again position slightly extra in pre-season, he is usually a nice backup choice there, and it’ll give him an opportunity to get extra sport time.
I feel it’s a no brainer personally…
