Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi was in fine form before a long-term injury that kept him out for five months.

The 19-year-old is now back to fitness, but has found it hard to get a place in the starting lineup, as Frank Lampard opts for Willian and Christian Pulisic.

Lampard has now urged the youngster to keep proving himself whenever he comes on from the bench and insists that his best is yet to come.

Lampard told the media: “His best is to come. He’s just turned 19. He’s in a real early stage of his development and come back from a really serious injury. I’ve had to manage that with him, and we have real competition in wide areas.

“He’s going to get better and better. He has to apply himself in training every day, has to show when he comes on what he can do and bring to the table if he’s going to start more games. For sure he will do that, but we’ve got to be steady with Callum.”
