Chelsea has good news concerning their injury woes going into their Premier League clash with Liverpool at Anfield on Thursday.
Chelsea winger, Callum Hudson-Odoi, was removed during Chelsea’s 0-0 draw with Manchester United on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.
Hudson-Odoi was replaced by defender Reece James, and he was later seen with an ice pack strapping around his left thigh.
Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, confirmed at his post-match press conference after the game that, Hudson-Odoi picked up a minor injury, saying his decision to take him off was also a ‘tactical choice’.
“[He was] a little bit injured,” “The reason [he was replaced] was a tactical reason and a little injury, a combination, because we switched to a back-five in defence and covered the wide position from [Marcus] Rashford in between [Cesar] Azpilicueta and Reece James.
“In the second half, that was not an option to use Callum there, and that’s why it was a tactical choice.”
However, according to the Daily Post, Hudson-Odoi is recovering fast to be fit for Chelsea’s away game against Jurgen Klopp’s side.
There is a sense of positivity amongst the Blues that the 20-year old will be fit for the game.
