Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is injured and will not play against Manchester United tonight according to
The official team news won’t be out until 7, but well connected sources like Alex Goldberg and Nizaar Kinsella are reporting it very firmly and we’re inclined to believe them.
It’s a recurrence of the hamstring problem that’s been limiting him in training recently. It doesn’t sound severe but it’s a blow.

Callum Hudson-Odoi is unfortunately out tonight w/ a hamstring knock. Hopefully just a one game thing.
Good luck to Chelsea, as many of you know, I unfortunately have to miss this game due to personal reasons.#KTBFFH

If it’s true it’s a real blow for Frank Lampard and Chelsea’s chances tonight. We need that tricky attacking threat to break teams down, and CHO has just been working his way back to form gradually.
Christian Pulisic is out too, so there’s a real lack of wingers in the team at the moment. We imagine that Lampard will play Mason Mount on the left and Jorginho through the middle, as he did earlier this season when these two were unavailable.
We’ll find out less than an hour.
