Chelsea fans can’t believe Sarri is playing Willian over Hudson-Odoi – and the stats back their argument

By | 12th January 2019

CHELSEA fans are furious with manager Maurizio Sarri after he dropped talented teenager Callum Hudson-Odoi back to the bench.

The 18-year-old, who is being relentlessly chased by Bayern Munich, had started the last two games – but has been dropped again for Pedro.

That means Willian, who has come under pressure from home fans, remains in the starting line-up.

Chelsea academy star Hudson-Odoi had provided two assists against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup and had put in an impressive showing against Tottenham in the League Cup semi-final.

But his performances were obviously not enough to impress Italian boss Sarri, who has brought Pedro back into the team.

Willian has become public enemy No1 in recent weeks after a string of lacklustre performances.

Chelsea fans were fuming with the Blues boss – but one Bayern fan was delighted with the manager’s actions.

Complaxes wrote: “Chelsea actually starts with three wingers upfront and none of them is Hudson-Odoi. Sarri Main man, does the job for our club.”

The Brazilian has managed only one Europa League goal and two assists in his last 16 matches – a dire stretch that started at the end of October.

Chelsea fans are not impressed Sarri has continued with Willian, despite the belief Hudson-Odoi could head for the exit door because he is not getting enough game time.

Sarri has made only one other change to the team that lost 1-0 to rivals Spurs in the League Cup earlier this week.
