Odoi Stars As Chelsea Zoom Into FA Cup Fourth Round

Callum Hudson-Odoi fired a confidence-boosting first Chelsea goal in four months as the Blues saw off Nottingham Forest 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

The 19-year-old England forward drilled home the opener then had a hand in Ross Barkley’s facile finish as Frank Lampard’s side coasted into the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Forest had a penalty chalked off after a Video Assistant Referee review, and Ryan Yates’ header ruled out for offside.

But this still remained a comfortable Chelsea win, and one to leave head coach Lampard eyeing an upturn in home form.

Hudson-Odoi will hope his first Blues goal since the 7-1 Carabao Cup victory over Grimsby on September 25 can propel him back to top form. The teenager found himself clutching his right Achilles after one heavy challenge, however, in a small reminder of his continued drive back from surgery in April.

Hudson-Odoi appeared to suffer no after-effects from the robust tackle, but evidently remains mindful of that Achilles tear that yielded a premature end to last season.
