Tuchel Pleased With Hudson-Odoi's Norwich Display But Insists Chelsea Star Can Still Improve

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has come out in praise of forward Callum Hudson-Odoi after his performance against Norwich on Saturday afternoon but insists he can still improve.

The Blues were without strikers Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner against the Canaries and in their stead, played Hudson-Odoi up front.

The youngster put Chelsea 2-0 up after 18 minutes, in a fixture that saw his side fire seven past Daniel Farke's men, and without reply.

Speaking after the game, Tuchel was full of praise for the number 20 but insisted there is still room for improvement.

"Good, he had a good game," said Tuchel, as quoted by

"He played well against Malmo and had a good game today but there are still things to improve and to work on.

"Now it is on him. It is like I said before the game, he needs to show that he is able to produce performances like this consistently and now is the time to show.

"Next opportunity will be Tuesday."


Hudson-Odoi has had to fight hard for his place amongst the Chelsea squad, having made only four appearances in nine league games this season.

However, he is proving that he is a key asset for Tuchel to have, putting in consistent performances and scoring in two of his four league games this season.

Tuchel had previously stressed the importance of Hudson-Odoi working towards getting himself more and more game time.

"He needs to prove it. He needs to play the next 250 games at the highest level and then we can say it was."
