Frank Lampard is impressed by Callum Hudson-Odoi’s performance in Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Krasnodar in tonight’s Champions League and has given update about the attacker’s injury fears after the Englishman was spotted with ice strapping around his thigh in the second half.
Hudson-Odoi was given a start in Wednesday’s Champions League clash against Krasnodar and the young forward used his opportunity very well, netting the Blues opening goal before the end of the first half.
An impressive late goals from Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic sealed Frank Lampard’s men their first victory in the tournament but there were possible injury concerns regarding Hudson-Odoi, who was brought off in the 71st minute.
But head coach Frank Lampard is hopeful Hudson-Odoi’s problem isn’t a serious one despite the 19-year old appearing in some worrying state in the Blues dugout.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Frank Lampard said: “In terms of Callum’s problem, it hasn’t been reported to me after the game that there’s an injury.
“I hope that there is nothing wrong and I’m excited he had a wonderful evening”.
