The Blues winger has acknowledged his ‘flaws’ and opened up on how he is addressing them at Stamford Bridge.

Callum Hudson-Odoi accepts he isn’t perfect, like any other player, but has vowed to keep working on his development to iron out any rough edges and to be prepared for matches.

The 20-year-old is a highly rated graduate of the Blues academy and has featured for the first-team since 2018, making 26 goal contributions (13 goals, 13 assists) in 77 appearances in his young career so far.

But injury setbacks, along with the intense competition for spots in the line-up, have sparked regular doubts over Hudson-Odoi’s future amid reported interest from Bayern Munich.

Under the guidance of Chelsea manager and legend Frank Lampard, however, the winger is confident he can unlock his true potential.

“Nobody is a perfect player. There are always flaws, and you want to keep improving every day,” Hudson-Odoi told the club’s website.

“I want to keep working hard and learning every day. I want to keep educating myself whether it’s at home watching clips or just learning under the manager.

“He knows what to do, and he knows what is right for me and how to play, so I want to keep learning under him and working hard.

“Every time I get on the pitch or in training, I want to give my best every time. I want to give 110 percent in the match.

“I want to always make sure that I’m ready. The best way you train is the best way you play in a game.”

Chelsea return to action on Saturday for a trip to Fulham in the Premier League.
