Callum Hudson-Odoi has been one of the best players in the Europa League this season. This stat proves what we already knew.
Hudson-Odoi showed yesterday evening, once again, just how ready he is to compete in the professional game. Bayern Munich can see it and hopefully Maurizio Sarri will now too.
He is competing with players who have had lengthy careers in football and making them look like debutants. That’s why he needs to start for us going forward.
Most of Hudson-Odoi’s opportunities have come in the Europa League, which is hardly surprising. Sarri has continually rotated in the competition, giving our fringe players a chance.
Hudson-Odoi has made the most of the chances he’s been given, which is reflected in the competition’s statistics. No player in the Europa League this term has completed more dribbles!

That is testament to CHO’s positivity and ability to beat a man. He has the edge over both Pedro and Willian in that respect – and HAS to start as a result.
