Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has hailed the performance of Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi in Chelsea’s 6-0 win over Barnsley in the Carabao Cup.

The winger has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich after playing a handful of minutes for Chelsea this season, prompting Lampard to hand him his first start of the season.

The Chelsea reacted to his display: “I think he did well,” Lampard said after the match.

“Not easy with not so many minutes, he is the same as some others in the same boat at the moment. I thought at parts he looked fresh and sharp.

“We talk about work ethic, which he showed really well in terms of getting the ball back for us, recovery runs, all the things which must be absolutely standard in his game.

“If you look at the top wingers in the Premier League and how they play. He showed loads of great moments. I was really pleased with Callum, I thought he had a good night.”

It’s unclear if the England youth international has done enough to earn first Premier League start of the season at the weekend against West Brom.
