Maurizio Sarri can get Chelsea fans on side by starting Callum Hudson-Odoi v Manchester United

Chelsea did pick up a win away to Malmo in the Europa League on Thursday night, but the mood around Stamford Bridge is still bleak after some shocking performances.

The Blues have lost heavily to both Manchester City and Bournemouth recently, while they have also slipped out of the top four in the Premier League table.

Manager Maurizio Sarri is under extreme pressure as it stands and even his team selection against Malmo was questionable, as he stuck with several of the senior players that have recently failed and left out promising youngsters.

But Sarri can win over a large number of angry supporters if he decides to start Callum Hudson-Odoi in the next game.

Chelsea host Manchester United on Monday night in the FA Cup and it’s the perfect opportunity for the manager to show faith in the highly-rated attacker.

Blues supporters are desperate for the 18-year-old to get a real opportunity in the first team, which is not just a brief substitute appearance in the closing stages against Malmo.

He is a skilful winger that needs to be unleashed on senior football and a starting berth in a cup tie against an elite side would be a positive message.

Hudson-Odoi’s reputation is well known around football and it’s about time that he got a real opportunity for Chelsea to impress.
