Callum Hudson-Odoi: Chelsea “could win the title” this season

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi believes the club have a chance of winning the Premier League title this season if things carry on as they are.

The 20-year is freshly off the back of a decent international break with the England under-21 team, and he is in confident spirits about his own performances, and about where Chelsea are heading this season.

The academy graduate scored for England under-21s last night in their victory over Andorra, and this is something he will be hoping to bring back with him to the field for Chelsea.

They face Newcastle on Saturday, and there might be a chance of some more minutes for Hudson-Odoi there.

Frank Lampard could be without both the injured Christian Pulisic, and Kai Havertz, who has been self-isolating after testing positive for Covid-19.

With the confidence Hudson-Odoi is showing right now, it might be wise for Lampard to give him a start out on the left wing where he is most effective.

Hudson-Odoi has been speaking to the Chelsea website, he said:

“For myself, I wanted to try to get a goal and give a good performance so hopefully I did that. I want to keep improving every day, keep working hard and keep getting good results for the team [Enaldn under-21s].

And on Chelsea, he said:

“We’ve started really well and we want to maintain that. What we’re doing well is defensively we’re keeping clean sheets and up front we’re scoring a lot of goals, which is a good thing.

“We’re not just dependent on our attackers; we’re dependent on everyone in the team and we’re getting goals from everywhere on the pitch. We want to keep building, keep getting goals, keep getting assists and keep working hard as a team and hopefully, you never know, we could win the title as well.”
