Callum Hudson-Odoi made his first league start of the season and he provided the assist for Tammy Abraham’s goal.

It was his third assist in all competitions since he returned from injury.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was impressed with Hudson-Odoi’s performance against Southampton.

The boss admitted he was impressed with Hudson-Odoi’s workrate and movement off the ball against Southampton.

Lampard said: “He did well.

“It was a great assist for Tammy’s goal, a great ball. His work-rate was good, he stayed tight to the midfield and released himself to the full-back. It was all the things I want from the wingers.

“He could have got a goal, he got in behind a few times where he can be lethal. That’s where I want him.

“He can get better. He has had a serious injury so fitness has been a bit of an issue, and looking after him. Now he’s showing he’s getting towards proper match fitness.”
