Hudson-Odoi: We wanted to make a statement

‘All of us know how each other plays,’ he added. ‘We knew we had to combine as we do in training.

‘Norwich were sitting back a bit. It could have been difficult but we found a way through and obviously it is good that we got the seven goals.’

Hudson-Odoi was one of the front-three yesterday rather than in the wing-back role he has also been asked to fulfil, and he did himself no harm for being given more chances there with his display on the Stamford Bridge pitch.

‘My aim when playing in the front three is to score goals and make assists,’ he said, ‘but contributing to the team as much as possible will help me no matter what. So I think to myself that I’ve got to work hard, keep improving, keep showing the work off the ball as well, but it is helping by scoring and making assists as well.
