Chelsea fans will feel good waking up this Monday morning after a successful weekend as a Blues fan.
Their side took three points away at Wolves, something that many sides have failed to do in the last couple of seasons, and now they are eagerly awaiting the return of more quality players coming back into the squad.
Callum Hudson-Odoi has been out injured for the last 8 months and he is right on the verge of finally returning to the first team fold.
The 18-year old played 60 minutes for the Development squad on Friday evening and looked very sharp, evening grabbing an assist.
His Manager Frank Lampard believes that he has shown enough to now be considered for a spot on the bench at the very least, and he will possibly be back in this Tuesday as Chelsea prepare to face Valencia in the Champions League.
Speaking to the Chelsea website, Lampard said:
“Callum is not far off but we have to be careful because it was a major injury. What we’ve done is actually get him back ahead of time but we have to make sure the strength is right in the area because it could lead to other injuries if we go too quickly.
“We have the Carabao Cup coming up next midweek and that may give us opportunities to look at players who’ve been injured or some different options. In between that time, if Callum shows this week with how good he is in training, then I’ll have to consider him from now on.”
