According to former Chelsea boss Glenn Hoddle, the 3-4-3 system suits Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi because he likes to be wide.

Hudson-Odoi provided the assist for Cesar Azpilicueta’s goal and tormented the Burnley defence down Chelsea’s right wing.

“I think this wing-back role, the system actually suits him,” Hoddle told BT Sport. “He likes to be wide. He likes to stay wide and hug the line.

“The Chelsea players, midfield players particularly on the diagonals, were finding him much easier today than they were against Wednesday. He’s always wide.

“It was intelligent play for the (first) goal, he’s drawn him in, created the space for Azpilicueta and laid it on a plate after really aggressive play.

“All the positive things down this right-hand side came from Hudson-Odoi. He’s got to be delighted with his performance and his manager certainly will be.

“I’m just wondering if he took him off to see Reece James but maybe to save him a bit so he doesn’t get injured [for the Spurs game].”
