“Southgate putting Chelsea to shame” – surprise England team news sparks predictable reaction from these Blues fans

A number of Chelsea fans are clearly excited at the prospect of seeing Callum Hudson-Odoi get a start for England.

This certainly reflects quite badly on Blues boss Maurizio Sarri, who has worked with Hudson-Odoi for much longer but shown himself to be a great deal more reluctant than Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate to throw him into his team.

Hudson-Odoi has shone whenever he’s managed to get on the pitch for Chelsea, looking particularly impressive in the Europa League this season.

Could this persuade Sarri to change his ways? We’ll see, but for now he’s taking a lot of stick from this lot…
