Callum Hudson-Odoi was in the starting lineup for the first time in the Premier League. Sarri made seven changes in total. And how the Italian has treated the 18-year-old has been enraging for The Pensioners. They already saw him starting for the starting team of England during the international break.
It might be a possibility that fear has evolved in the mind of Maurizio Sarri that Odoi might leave the club. He has just 12 months left on his contract. Ever since Bayern Munich tried to sign him during the January transfer window his start was inevitable.
However, they didn’t just want the 12-year-old talented winger in the starting line up to convince him that his future lies at Stamford Bridge. He was given the start that he deserves. Odoi proved them right with his last night’s performance. He was irritating Solley March, Anthony Knockaert, and Gaetan Bong with his unpredictable dribbling.
GIROUD AND LOFTUS CHEEK STRIKE
Olivier Giroud, the French forward of the World Champion team proved his spot in the starting 11 by delivering an exceptional assist to the English youngster.
Giroud also scored his sixth goal in five starts for club and country. Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante reasonably rank as the club’s only two truly world-class players were also returned after being rested at the weekend.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek arguably upstaged in just his second league start of the season. It was he who played the pass from which Hazard and made it 2-0 with a wonderful curling shot. Stamford Bridge is used to these shockers from the Belgian, but Loftus-Cheek is increasingly becoming a sole force, this time he sealed a timely and uplifting win with his spectacular strike.
