Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi picked up an injury while trying to control a ball during Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Burnley on Monday night at Stamford Bridge.

The game against Burnley was Hudson-Odoi’s fourth consecutive Premier League game for Chelsea.

Hudson-Odoi tried to carry on after suffering the injury but could be seen limping more and more heavily before being eventually being replaced by Pedro in the 41st minute.

The teenager had to be helped off the pitch by the Chelsea medical staff, and was applauded by the Matthew Harding stand as he slowly made his way around the pitch.

The 18-year-old left Stamford Bridge on crutches and wearing a protective boot and has now admitted his season is over after he ruptured his achilles.

Hudson-Odoi wrote: “Really gutted to end my season with a ruptured achilles, gotta work hard and try and come back stronger for next season!!!”

The injury will be a big blow for Chelsea with the Blues fighting for a top four finish and the Europa League trophy.

Chelsea assistant manager Gianfranco Zola also talked about Hudson-Odoi’s injury after the game against Burnley.

“Hudson it looks a serious thing. Before I can tell you how serious, we have to wait until tomorrow. But it’s not looking good. It’s a problem with his Achilles tendon,” Zola said.

Meanwhile, David Luiz has accused Burnley of playing anti-football in the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

Luiz told Sky Sports: “We tried everything to win the game.

“It’s difficult when you play against a team who have two chances and score two goals and didn’t want to play the game.

“It’s anti-football. Losing time (time wasting) all the time, especially when you have the ball. Their players went to the floor and stopped the game.

“They were playing 11 inside the box. It’s difficult to score against a team like that.”
