Of course Hudson-Odoi is still bound to face further criticism for breaking lockdown rules in the first place, especially as the winger was one of the first Premier League figures, alongside Mikel Arteta, to contract the Coronavirus.
With this matter now closed, the ace can now focus on recovering from injury and working to play a part for Frank Lampard’s side when the season resumes next week.
The youngster has made 23 first-team appearances this season, scoring three goals and chipping in with five assists.
