Chelsea fans praise Callum Hudson-Odoi for performance against Arsenal
Some Chelsea fans did give attacker Callum Hudson-Odoi some recognition on Twitter, despite a frustrating night in the 2-2 draw at home to Arsenal in the Premier League.
The Blues were twice pegged back by 10-man Arsenal at Stamford Bridge and it was certainly two points dropped in the midweek London derby.
After David Luiz’s red card in the first-half for Arsenal, Jorginho stepped up with his usual composure to put the hosts in front from the penalty spot.
But Gabriel Martinelli raced through on a counter attack from a Chelsea corner to equalise for Arsenal in the 63rd minute.
Cesar Azpilicueta’s close-range finish in the 84th minute looked to have secured the win, but a nervous Chelsea team conceded soon after from Hector Bellerin’s effort on the edge of the box.
Frank Lampard’s team remain fourth in the league standings, but all that means that Manchester United will be only three points behind if they beat Burnley on Wednesday night.
It was a case of more wastefulness in possession for Chelsea in a home match and they looked far more threatening when they were against 11 men.
A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media did at least find a positive with Hudson-Odoi, who is starting to really show his promise in the first-team.
The 19-year-old looked to create all night with plenty of crosses and dazzling runs, including the assists for Azpilicueta’s goal.
Here are some Chelsea fans on the English winger:
Hudson-Odoi man of the match and it isn’t even a discussion
