 Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi has been having an incredible season for both club and country so far.

At just the age of 18, he has been his England debut and has also gotten his first start for the Three Lions, and the teenager has also impressed for Chelsea in the games he has played this season. Besides that, he’s being wanted by a lot of top European clubs, including Bayern Munich who have submitted bids up to three times for the Chelsea academy product, but the Blues are keen on keeping hold of their prized academy talent.

Hudson-Odoi got his first Chelsea Premier League start against Brighton as Chelsea triumphed 3-0 in that game, and has now made three league starts, and has featured 19 times for Chelsea this season.

Hudson-Odoi got his third league start in the 2-0 defeat to Liverpool, but it was a game that the youngster struggled to make an impact and was taken off early in the second-half.

Liverpool left-back Andrew Robertson has hailed the Chelsea teenager and tips him as a star for the future, while also revealing that he was happy to see him taken off during the weekend’s clash.

He said: “I knew about him before, a lot has been said about him. He has been linked with Bayern Munich and made his England debut.

“I’m sure he has a fantastic career ahead of him, he is only young. It is better not to put too much pressure on him because he can be a great player.

“I managed to keep him quite quiet which is a positive for me because I know good and creative he can be.

“I was just happy to see the back of him when he was taken off. But I’m sure he will go on to big things.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
