Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi impressed as a right wing-back as Chelsea beat Burnley 2-0 on Sunday.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was impressed with Hudson-Odoi’s defensive display against Burnley but thinks there is one aspect of his attacking that he needs to ‘work on’.

“I thought that [the role] maybe suits for him because he can play from the line and he can use his speed and acceleration,” Tuchel told BT Sport after the match.

“He also loves to come from the left side. I can see from his ability there.

“We have to work a bit on his timing but he is also a threat with his speed and his capacity.

“Today is also a lot to defend because of the long balls. Azpi needed his help on his side and he did, again, very, very well.”

Hudson-Odoi tormented the Burnley defence. He provided an assist for Cesar Azpilicueta and hit the post himself in an impressive display.
