Former Liverpool defender Stephen Warnock has told it would be “horrible to play against” Chelsea forward Callum Hudson-Odoi after seeing his performance against Nottingham Forest.
The Blues have secured their place in the FA Cup 4th round after beating Forest 2-0, and the English youngster has scored his first goal during the clash.
After the game Warnock has praised Hudson-Odoi, saying he would not want to play against the club teenager.
He told the fellow pundit Alex Scott on BBC programme Match of the Day: “We wouldn’t want to play against him, would we? He is one of those players, he can go inside, outside, you don’t know what you are going to get from him, which way he is going to go. Horrible to play against.”
Frank Lampard was also delighted with the 19-year-old’s game.
“A good performance and pleased to see him high up the pitch, pleased to see him being aggressive in how he gets at people which is what he is there for. He gets his goal with a great strike. It’s been an interesting 12 months for him considering how young he is, when you take that into account. Last year everyone was talking about him for different reasons. He gets a terrible injury, he comes back very early and when he did come back there were issues getting him tip top,” the Chelsea boss said.
