Hudson-Odoi also made a great interception late in the game, which stopped Leander Dendoncker from shooting at Edouard Mendy.
“It was the best I’ve seen Hudson Odoi, to be honest with you. He was the most creative player, he was the outlet. Late on in the game, he defended well,” acclaimed by Rio Ferdinand.
After the game, Rio Ferdinand praised the performances of young Chelsea stars Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic. While analyzing Chelsea’s draw over Wolves when he also spoke about Thomas Tuchel as a coach and what he expects from his players.
“He’s going to have to get out on the training pitch and he’s going to have to get his tactical board out and make these guys understand it’s not all about possession. You’ve got to want to hurt and penetrate against teams,” a statement by Ferdinand.
“We’ve said that at half-time, there was not much more really until Pulisic and Mason Mount came on the pitch and they looked a little bit more threatening. Listen, you can’t judge him on this game. He’s gone for the experience today but I think Mason Mount and Pulisic are the people who are going to give him that thrust up the top of the pitch,” added Ferdinand.
Before heading across London to face Tottenham, Chelsea will face Burnley this weekend. The Blues are eight in the table right now, 5 points behind fourth-placed West Ham United.
