Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi proved to be the surprise package for Chelsea during the pre-season, and the 17-year-old caught the eye with his confidence, pace and skill.

The height of his pre-season was when he toiled with experienced Arsenal fullback Hector Bellerin, and it was enough for Maurizio Sarri to keep him from going out on loan.

Dennis Wise is thrilled with Hudson-Odoi’s progress and he believes the youngster has a lot of potential to be great.

“I think Hudson-Odoi has been outstanding,” said Wise. “I think it is good he has had the opportunity. He is a local boy and I am looking forward to seeing a lot more of him and him competing against players in that position.

“I think he is capable to go and do it. I think he gave Hector Bellerin a torrid time in Dublin and in his performance against Inter at times.”
