Chelsea fans critical of Callum Hudson-Odoi for latest performance
Callum Hudson-Odoi made a cameo appearance from the bench in the win over Lille on Tuesday night – and some Chelsea fans on Twitter were not impressed with his performance.
The Blues crucially picked up a 2-1 home victory against the French side in their final group stage match of the Champions League.
Frank Lampard’s side have sneaked into the knockout rounds in second at the expense of Ajax and will now wait to see who they draw in the last-16.
Tammy Abraham’s close-range finish opened the scoring in the 19th minute and it was his 13th goal of the season across all competitions.
Captain Cesar Azpilicueta then added a second goal with a powerful header from a corner and Chelsea were cruising at Stamford Bridge towards a win.
After missing a number of goalscoring opportunities, ex-Blues forward Loic Remy smashed in a left-footed goal in the 78th minute to set up a tense finale and a second Lille goal would have seen Lampard’s team drop down into the Europa League.
They managed to hold on for an important win and now turn their attention to hosting Bournemouth at the weekend in the Premier League.
A selection of of Chelsea supporters on social media are concerned about Hudson-Odoi after he made a quiet appearance from the bench.
Hudson-Odoi entered the action just after the hour with the team cruising at the team and it looked like the perfect platform for him to express himself.
The left-winger has found himself slip behind both Christian Pulisic and Willian in the pecking order, so he has to make the most of opportunities on the pitch.
He failed to inject a spark of quality against vulnerable opposition, with his only highlight a powerful shot that was blocked.
The 19-year-old is struggling to get back to his best since a return from injury and isn’t in favour right now, but he’s still an incredible talent with raw potential and surely he still has a big role to play moving forward.
Here are some Chelsea fans on Hudson-Odoi:

Hudson-Odoi gives the ball away sooo much. That wasn’t a good cameo.

Hudson-Odoi has not been himself for a while now. Body language also appears very negative. #CFC
