When fully fit, Chelsea have enough attacking talents in the team. From Kai Havertz who can play multiple positions, to Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.

Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is definitely facing a huge battle to stake a claim in the Chelsea starting eleven, and it’s a battle that he’s gradually winning.

He came off the bench yet again in the 1-0 win against Fulham and was very lively, as we have seen in recent weeks.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted that it will be difficult to keep the 20-year-old winger on the bench, but also admitted that one of his star players must sit on the bench in every game.

According to Lampard, all his wide players give him something very different to think about.

Lampard admitted after the win against Fulham: “There has been a real uplift in Callum’s form recently and that is part of his development. Now he’s going by people and showing a lot of confidence. He had to get over a serious injury last season.

“Hakim gives us something different, he was outstanding in the period he was fit when we were on a really good run, Christian always is a big threat. When those three are fit there’s normally one who can’t start the game, but they must come on and impact the game because you generally make substitutions with wingers.

“I had Leicester in mind, I’ll have to see how the players react in the next day or two, but in this busy period the players will have to accept sometimes being an impact. Callum is very exciting at the minute, he’s approaching it all the right way and he’ll get many, many minutes.”
