Carlo Cudicini, assistant to Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri, has praised youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi after he produced an impressive performance in the Blues 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup.
The 18-year-old, whose future at Chelsea is in doubt with interest from Bayern Munich, got another chance to impress on Saturday and he took it.
Playing on the right wing, his excellent deliveries made both goals for Morata, who scored his first goals in six matches.
“He did very well; it was a very good performance – two assists and he worked very hard defensively,” Cudicini said.
“His commitment was great and you want him to have performances like that so he can put some doubts in Maurizio’s mind and be in contention for a place.”
This was only his seventh appearance of the season, and he has yet to start a Premier League game in 2018-19.
