‘Better than Sancho!’ – Chelsea fans love what Callum Hudson-Odoi did vs Southampton – Football.London

Chelsea fans have expressed their delight at Callum Hudson-Odoi starting as a forward in their Premier League against Southampton.

Prior to Saturday, the Englishman had made just one appearance in the league for the Blues, playing 82 minutes in the 3-0 win over Aston Villa.

Fans were delighted to see Hudson-Odoi on the team sheet ahead of the game against the Saints, but they were particularly excited to see where he would be playing.

Thomas Tuchel selected the 20-year-old on the left-wing, his natural position, as opposed to right-wing-back where he has so often featured since the German took charge of the club last season.

Speaking to the 5th stand before kick-off, Tuchel said: “Callum has waited a long time, particularly to play in this position where he feels the most comfortable. So, this is a time for him to show this.”

It is something that fans have been calling for a long time now and now that they have got their wish, they have applauded Tuchel for the decision. Fans were also left in awe of his performance at Stamford Bridge – which included a nutmeg on former Chelsea man Tino Livramento.

Here is the best of the reaction.
