BBC pundit Garth Crooks has heaped praise on Chelsea teenager Callum Hudson-Odoi following his impressive display against Newcastle on Saturday.

The Blues managed to register their sixth consecutive victory in all competitions with a 1-0 win over the Magpies at the Stamford Bridge. Hudson-Odoi, who returned for the club after a lengthy Achilles injury, put in a solid performance and eventually assisted the only goal in the game.

The Englishman has three assists in three league games at the moment. And, Crooks was clearly impressed by what he saw against Newcastle United.

“I don’t know what Frank Lampard is serving these youngsters for breakfast at Stamford Bridge but it certainly seems to be working,” he said.

“The latest protege to find himself back in the limelight is Callum Hudson-Odoi. I selected Hudson-Odoi in my team last season before he got injured but against Newcastle he looked back to his best.”

“Chelsea are not the force they have been in the past but with Hudson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori and Kurt Zouma – plus a little bit of luck and a fair wind – they could be winning trophies in two years.”
