Chelsea and Wolves played out a goalless draw in Thomas Tuchel’s first game in charge of the Blues.

Chelsea bossed possession all through the game, but the chances were few and thin. Callum Hudson-Odoi who surprisingly played as a right wing-back was Chelsea’s most dangerous player all game long.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand singled out Hudson-Odoi for praise, while also hailing the impact of Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount after joining the fray in the second half.

“He’s going to have to get out on the training pitch and he’s going to have to get his tactical board out and make these guys understand it’s not all about possession,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

“You’ve got to want to hurt and penetrate against teams.

“We’ve said that at half-time, there wasn’t much more really until Pulisic and Mason Mount came on the pitch and they looked a little bit more threatening. Listen, you can’t judge him on this game.

“It was the best I’ve seen Hudson Odoi to be honest with you. He was the most creative player, he was the outlet. Late on in the game he defended well.

“What he would have learned is he’s gone for experience today but I think Mason Mount and Pulisic are the people who are going to give him that thrust up the top of the pitch.”
