In the 21st minute of tonight’s Champions League tie against Rennes, Callum Hudson-Odoi fired Chelsea into the lead after some brilliant work by Mason Mount.
Mount wrestled the ball off Jeremy Doku in the Blues’ defensive third before driving forward, the ace – who comes under far too much unwarranted criticism – then drove the ball forward.
Mount looked up and played the ball over the top and into Hudson-Odoi’s path, the winger showed brilliant composure as he bared down on goal before slotting the ball into the back of the net.
What a pass that is! ?

Chelsea would’ve had the lead in the opening minutes if it wasn’t for an uncharacteristic miss from Timo Werner from just a couple of yards out.
