What Thomas Tuchel told Callum Hudson-Odoi before Chelsea’s win over Norwich

Hudson-Odoi vs Norwich

Chelsea would face off with Norwich in a Premier League clash on Saturday.

The Blues headed into the game without the services of Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner and N’Golo Kante.

This would allow Thomas Tuchel to hand some rare starts to a couple of Chelsea fringe players, including Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The winger has hardly been given a chance under the German, and when he has been, it has generally been in an unorthodox right-wing-back role, rather than Hudson-Odoi’s preferred positions on the left and right-wing.

Vs Norwich, however, CHO was finally handed a start from the left. The winger did not disappoint, netting Chelsea’s second of the day and causing a Norwich own goal in the second half.

Hudson-Odoi reveals Tuchel advice

Now, following the game, Hudson-Odoi has revealed what Thomas Tuchel told him before facing Norwich.

When asked about the advice he received from the German, the Chelsea winger stated:

“It was just to keep putting in the intensity, and keep working hard and going forward and being direct – be myself. And try to create as many opportunities as possible, try to score. Be decisive in the box.

“It was good the sort of instructions that he gave to me, playing in that position – to be free, to do what you do, and try to make things happen. It was very influential for me. It was good.”

Hudson-Odoi continued:

“You have got to prove it to yourself as well, keep on doing your stuff. When you are playing, every game, you have got to show yourself and show how capable you are of playing and doing it every game, show consistency and put in a good performance to show that you are worthy of playing in the team.”

Chelsea are now set to face Southampton in the League Cup on Tuesday. And with both Timo Werner and Lukaku expected to be out of that game as well, perhaps Hudson-Odoi will be handed another chance to impress.
