Marcos Alonso to Hudson-Odoi: “Bayern Munich? We are Chelsea, another great team, the Premier League is the most competitive league in the world, I don’t know why someone would go to Bayern Munich” Ha

Callum Hudson-Odoi has more assists in 59 minutes than Willian has since October.

At last a manager speaking clearly, straight and not dodging questions.

How did he play today? Could not watch the match.

Our development squad continued their unbeaten start to the season and returned to the top of the Premier League 2 table as goals from Callum Hudson-Odoi and Clinton Mola secured victory at St Mary’s.

Reece James and Hudson-Odoi both came through 75 minutes of a battling encounter, with the latter opening the scoring for Andy Myers’s side just before the hour mark. Mola then doubled our lead 13 minutes later with a header that was adjudged by the officials to have crossed the line by inches.

Jamie Cumming made important saves in goal to preserve a third PL2 clean sheet of the season, while James also hit the crossbar with a header as the young Blues grew stronger in the contest to record a deserved victory.

The three points take us two clear of Everton and Arsenal, winners of the past three league titles, and continue an excellent start to the season for the team. There is a quick turnaround for our next outing, which comes at Bristol Rovers on Tuesday in the EFL Trophy.

While Hudson-Odoi and James started once again in the latest step of their injury comebacks, there were five other changes from our last PL2 outing, a 2-1 win against Brighton at Stamford Bridge eight days previously.

Billy Gilmour was the most notable returnee, with the Scotland Under-21 international and recent senior debutant having recovered from a groin strain to start alongside George McEachran in central midfield.

Cumming replaced Nicolas Tie in goal, Ian Maatsen came into the team at left-back, while both Thierno Ballo and Marcel Lavinier lined up in forward positions after featuring as substitutes against the Seagulls.

There has been an increased interest in the work of our Academy this season following Frank Lampard’s use of the likes of Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori, and the efforts of those players to take their opportunities so impressively.

However, Lampard reiterated in his Friday press conference that there was plenty of young talent that had yet to reach the mainstream and the next crop of young Blues have certainly started the season in fine form, coming into this latest league encounter unbeaten in six matches in all competitions at the start of the 2019/20 campaign.

It was at St Mary’s the previous evening where three former graduates of the Chelsea Academy started in the Premier League (Nathan Ake, Dominic Solanke and Ryan Bertrand), while the Saints PL2 team contained four youngsters who had spent time in our youth development programme, highlighting the extent of the system’s productivity.

Southampton had the best chance of the first 25 minutes as a teasing cross from left-back Jake Vokins caused problems in our six-yard box when Maatsen miscued an effort to turn the ball behind. Dan N’Lundulu was lurking for the hosts but Cumming dived bravely at the striker’s feet and the ball was eventually smuggled to safety.

Fantastic player.

 

Looks to have lost a bit of his pace though. Hopefully its more of a matter of getting fit again, and not from him trying to bulk up.

He is so young, he can still get faster by plyometric training etc would not worry. If it is not because of his achilles tendon, any muscle imbalances will surely be outgrown at some point.

I am not so sure if he has lost some of his pace. In one recent youth game, his pace seemed pretty good. Obviusly, it is not as good as his speed last season, but I think that after couple of months training, he will be as fast as last year. His tendon needs to get back to 100% and then his muscles he lost needs to get back to his old strenght

Confirmation from a member of the team that CHO was training like a beast but being held back.because we had a manager who wanted to wait 5 years to trust him.

"The club have done so much for me and I'm so thankful for that," he told BBC Sport.

"The decision that I made was a very good one for me and my family. We all thought that it was the right club to be at.

"I've been here all my life, so there's no need to change yet. My mum and dad are happy where they are and I'm happy where I am."

Well...

Well he certainly took his time to decide to renew. Again a lot of talking but a young guy who is still learning, maybe just let your football do the talking and get on with it.... plenty of opportunities for him now again to kick on and show his worth but for saying the club have done a lot for him and whatever else he is coming out with he would of renewed a lot lot sooner in my opinion.

Notice the "odd" word or sentence there?

No need to change yet, embarrassing guy you can already tell he will create the same problems as Hazard in a few years if he kicks on.

Yeah "yet".

I think he'll be different to the rest of the lads from the academy and won't be as inclined to remain loyal. The lure of Bayern last season also suggests that he would probably like to try his hand at a move abroad in the future to one of the heavyweights.

If that's the case so be it. Chelsea hold all the cards now and his future for a few years is tied up. If we can continue to be a successful club that wins and challenges for trophies it will hopefully encourage him to spend his best years here.
