Chelsea fans highlight Hudson-Odoi

A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media believe that Hudson-Odoi was outstanding during his performance against Newcastle. 

The 20-year-old academy graduate was back in his position favoured position at the weekend. Tuchel opted to deploy him as the left-sided attacker, which gives him the opportunity to get on the ball and run at the Newcastle backline. 

He was heavily involved in the opening goal with his driving run forward and it was a huge feature of his game before he was substituted off in the closing stages.
