Chelsea fans took to Twitter to vent their frustrations towards Hudson-Odoi's lack of first team opportunities.

Chelsea supporters and rivals alike were left calling for Sarri's head as Hudson-Odoi's limited playing time remains a key point of contention.

While Hudson-Odoi has yet to start a Premier League match, he has appeared in eight Europa League games, scoring four goals and adding two assists.

Valued at £40m, the summer transfer window could prove to be a pivotal point in the youngster's career with Bayern Munich, Manchester United, and Liverpool all closely monitoring the situation.

The Chelsea hierarchy are still looking to extend Hudson-Odoi's contract, with just one year remaining on his current deal, although the lack of consistent game time will likely play a deciding factor in the winger's final decision.
