Callum Hudson-Odoi: Sarri confirms plans for rising star’s full Chelsea debut

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri will be one step closer to the Stamford Bridge exit if he does not get a favourable result against Brighton today as the Blues aim to finish in the top four this season

The 18-year-old has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge due to his lack of first team opportunities since the start of the season, with Bayern Munich having a £35 million move for the winger rejected in January.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton would be grateful to see "world-class" Eden Hazard named on Chelsea's bench for a second successive match.

Hudson-Odoi has made 19 appearances for Chelsea this season and scored five goals but he is yet to start in the Premier League.

The kick-off time for the match is 7:45 pm.

Due to Hudson-Odoi's potential, he was called up to the most recent England side by Gareth Southgate for Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Montenegro.

The Spaniard admitted Chelsea had benefited from a huge slice of fortune and accepted Sarri's side must improve during the final weeks of the season to secure a Champions League place.

"Probably he will start tomorrow, or the next match".

Romelu Lukaku is the Red Devils' top scorer with 12 league goals this season, while Marcus Rashford's goal at the weekend against Watford saw him become the fourth United play to reach the ten-goal mark in the Premier League, and it's the first time since the 1995-96 campaign that four United players have reached double figures in the goal-scoring charts in the league.

Hughton has demanded an improved performance from his players after a below-par display in Saturday's 1-0 home defeat to fellow strugglers Southampton dragged them back into relegation danger.

Hudson-Odoi, left, and Hazard were among the Chelsea substitutes at Cardiff as Maurizio Sarri's selection came under scrutiny. "I can understand very well the frustrations but we are not doing so badly".

"I knew him when he was a kid [in the academy]".

Neil Warnock said: "I think we can keep the score down at Man City, I think we can keep it to single figures. We have to work to improve, I think that if you take a coach with my characteristics, you have to work".

"I told my lads that at least we can look forward to going to Manchester City on Wednesday!"

Chelsea fans should be pleased to hear Sarri's comments that the team will progress as they do as individuals.
