Hudson-Odoi nets for Chelsea

Prior to Sunday’s game, it was reported by Sky Sports that Callum Hudson-Odoi handed in a transfer request as he looked to force a move to Bayern Munich.

The game got off to a rather slow start but a Willian penalty would give Chelsea the lead in the 26th minute.

Callum Hudson-Odoi would then double Chelsea’s lead in the 64th minute with a superb goal.

The goal vs Sheffield Wednesday was Hudson-Odoi’s 5th goal contribution in five games for Chelsea.

Gianfranco Zola also gave an update on Hudson-Odoi’s future after the game.
