Callum Hudson-Odoi to make a return for Chelsea in Carabao Cup

Chelsea has received a timely boost with the news that forward Callum Hudson-Odoi will make his first-team return against Grimsby in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

Apart from Odoi, defender Reece James is also in line to make his first-team debut, as the pair step up their recoveries from injury this as confirmed by Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.

Asked whether Hudson-Odoi and James will play against Grimsby, Lampard said: “They will be involved on Wednesday night, they’ll be involved. We certainly need to look at players that haven’t been playing as much against Grimsby.

Due Respect

“We’ll pay them due respect, but it’s certainly a case of getting minutes for players who haven’t been playing. Callum is on the road to recovery.  It was a long injury, so he needs game time and Reece similarly

“There will be some different changes, but I expect the same level of performance (as against Liverpool) and I don’t want to lose the feeling of how we can be. It’s important we keep that.”

Odoi has been out since rupturing his Achilles in April, while James underwent ankle surgery in the summer which has prevented him playing for Frank Lampard until now.
