Chelsea fans have been understandably worried after Callum Hudson-Odoi was seen with an ice pack after scoring a brace for England U21 in their 5-1 win over Austria U21.

The 18 year has recently just returned from a long-term injury which made him miss preseason.

With several Chelsea players picking up injuries during the international break, an injury to Hudson-Odoi is the last thing any Chelsea fan wants to hear.

Hudson-Odoi was indeed seen with an ice pack on his thigh and walking gingerly after the game against Austria U21 but that shouldn’t cause panic among fans just yet because it looked more like fatigue than anything else.

The 18 year old is still only regaining match fitness this season so it’s obviously just muscle tightness and nothing more.

Hudson-Odoi should be ready for Chelsea’s Premier League against Newcastle on Saturday at Stamford Bridge and he will definitely be high on confidence after scoring a brace on Tuesday night for England U21.
