Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard, has promised that forward, Callum Hudson-Odoi, will get plenty of playing time in the coming months at the Blues.
Lampard said this ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League tie with Leicester City on Tuesday.
Hudson-Odoi started on the bench in Chelsea’s Premier League 1-0 victory against Fulham on Saturday night and only came on to play the final 15 minutes of the match.
The England international has found his first team opportunities to be somewhat limited this season.
The 20-year-old has only made two Premier League starts for Chelsea this season.
“There has been a real uplift in Callum’s form recently, and that is part of his development,” Lampard said as quoted by Sport Review.
“Now he’s going by people and showing a lot of confidence. He had to get over a serious injury last season.
“I had Leicester in mind, I will have to see how the players react in the next day or two, but in this busy period, the players will have to accept sometimes being an impact.
“Callum is very exciting at the minute, he’s approaching it all the right way, and he will get many, many minutes.
