Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has urged Callum Hudson-Odoi to keep up the standard he showed against West Brom in the Premier League yesterday.
The winger was a second-half substitute with Chelsea 3 – 0 down but changed the game and scored Chelsea’s second goal.
Lampard felt it was the Hudson-Odoi he wanted to see and urged him to kick-on from the performance.
“Callum gave me everything I asked and wanted from him in terms of his ability to go one v one, trying to take people on,” he told reporters after the game.
“He got his goal. That’s what Callum needs to do. That’s the sort of impact he can have for us and it has to be consistent. He gave himself a great platform now to continue in that vein.
“He’ll be very important for us if he does. It’s great to see the reaction of Callum and the way he made a difference and Tammy.
“The younger players, particularly with the players coming into the club, have been asked about it a lot this season about how they will react and where their place will be in the squad. It’s there for them. It’s there for them to take it with both hands.”
