Hudson - Odoi was treated harshly by Thomas Tuchel last term but is now shining. Hudson - Odoi had committed some microscopic error in judgment, either in his overhit ball to Kai Havertz or the subsequent delay in his press to retrieve possession, throwing Tuchel into one of his touchline meltdowns. The attacker told his boss to relax, and the instinct was to side with a player who went on to maul Norwich right back Ozan Kabak at

Hudson - Odoi was selected to start against the Canaries after impressing off the bench during Chelsea ’s 4-0 win over Malmo on Wednesday night – in a game where both Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner picked up injuries.

Thomas Tuchel has admitted that it is unfair for him to ask Callum Hudson-Odoi to operate as a wingback so often - but that he feels the Chelsea star needs to push his boundaries.

The 20-year-old Blues starlet picked up a rare starting appearance under the German during this weekend's 7-0 Premier League rout against Norwich, nabbing himself a first-half finish in the process.

The England international, who has often been fielded as a right wingback under Tuchel, played a more advanced role against the Canaries. The manager has admitted that the positional change is to help challenge him.

What has been said?

"I think he needs that," Tuchel stated. "For me, he needs that. These guys who are so full of quality hear sometimes a little bit too often how good they are.

Thomas Tuchel has heaped praise on Callum Hudson - Odoi for rising to the challenge set by his boss in Chelsea ' s 7-0 mauling of Norwich on Saturday. In the build-up to the game, when injuries to Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner made it apparent that Hudson - Odoi was set for an extended run in the team, Tuchel challenged The first phase of Hudson - Odoi ' s resurgence is complete as the 20-year-old found the back of the net and forced an own goal from Max Aarons as well, after which Tuchel was impressed.

Hudson - Odoi , meanwhile, was brought on in the first half following an injury to Timo Werner and delivered an impressive performance on the left-side of the forward line. The 20-year-old has not seen much playing time this season, with just two Premier League appearances to his name. And Tuchel admitted the injuries have come at a bad time, adding: “Yes, we are sad, of course. “We are never happy because we like to have the full squad.

Hudson-Odoi seizes rare chance

With injuries to Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner, the Cobham graduate - who has spent his entire career at Stamford Bridge - took the most of the opportunity presented to shine up front.

His early finish helped keep the ball rolling against Daniel Farke's struggling Canaries, and further enshrined Chelsea's place atop the summit of the Premier League as they look to back up last term's Champions League success.

At first glance it looked like Callum Hudson - Odoi would be used as a wing - back in Chelsea ' s 3-4-2-1 formation, but Tuchel may be tempted to use the England international in a central role behind the striker given his recent displays. Against Everton last Monday, Hudson - Odoi played on the left-hand side of The Chelsea man was a nightmare for Everton' s central midfielders, who struggled to deal with the direct running he produced through the middle. It was this pace and power that played a major role in Everton dropping deep for Chelsea ' s first goal, with Hudson - Odoi feeding Alonso down the left

Chelsea duo told to take their chance. Former West Ham, Chelsea and England midfielder Cole has now called on Kai Havertz and Callum Hudson - Odoi , who replaced Werner and Lukaku against the Swedish champions, to prove their worth. The Blues take on Norwich in the Premier League on Saturday, ahead of games against Southampton and Newcastle. “ Tuchel said that they’ve won matches without Timo and Romelu. Players like Kai Havertz and Callum Hudson - Odoi , they’ve come on tonight, they impacted the game, can they do that again on Saturday?’

Hudson-Odoi could yet force his way back into a regular role, given the length of the spell on the sidelines several other players are facing.
