Chelsea's Hudson-Odoi to get first Premier League start this week - Sarri

Chelsea's Hudson-Odoi to get first Premier League start this week - Sarri

Maurizio Sarri has confirmed England youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi will start one of Chelsea's next two Premier League games.

Despite this, the 18-year-old still picked up his first senior England caps last month.

And Sarri also refused to confirm that Callum Hudson-Odoi would start against Brighton.

Alan Leighton, the national secretary of the Prospect union, spoke out after the Cardiff manager renewed his attack on Premier League officials, even suggesting light-heartedly that there may have been justification for assault.

Under-fire Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says he is ready to give England worldwide Callum Hudson-Odoi a first start in the Premier League, either against Brighton on Wednesday or West Ham next Monday.

"First of all, at the beginning of the season in pre-season, after four or five training sessions, I realised that Callum was really a player with great potential", Sarri told a news conference.

"In my opinion, in that moment he wasn't ready to play at this level, but during the season he has improved and he is ready". "I don't think things will change now until Mike Riley goes, which is very unlikely because he's got himself rooted so far in". I want him to improve more because the potential is high. And Callum is always in my mind. But during the season, he has improved.

His refusal to ditch Jorginho and return N'Golo Kante to his preferred midfield holding role was the first faux-pas, while his occasional use of Eden Hazard as a centre forward frustrated the Belgian winger.

Warnock was furious that Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta was allowed to head a late equaliser from a clearly offside position as the Blues hit back to win 2-1 yesterday.

He said: "I am not happy, of course". I can understand, I can understand very well. Probably it was better [for the fans] to wait for the end of the game but for me it is not a big problem. We lost in Everton and played some good football.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton admits he was relieved to see Chelsea come from behind to beat relegation rivals Cardiff on Sunday, a result that eased pressure on the Seagulls. "After the match, they can say anything, but during the match I hope they will be able to help my players".
