Chelsea supporters lost their minds as Callum Hudson-Odoi was included in our starting eleven to face Tottenham this evening.
Hudson-Odoi has been forced to watch from the sidelines for much of the season, despite Pedro and Willian’s inconsistency proving to be a major flaw in our side.
The Englishman proved his effectiveness against Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon, providing two superb assists for Alvaro Morata in a man of the match display.
With speculation linking him with a move to Bayern Munich refusing to go away, Chelsea fans knew that he needed to start tonight in order to sway his mind in our favour.
And he does.
In a very strong lineup, Hudson-Odoi flanks false-9 Eden Hazard, with Willian occupying the right-wing position. His inclusion is testament to Maurizio Sarri’s faith in him.
Only time will tell if tonight’s start will prove to be enough to convince him to sign a new contract, but Chelsea fans aren’t thinking about that right now, they’re celebrating!
Here’s how some took to Twitter to react to news of Hudson-Odoi’s inclusion.
