Chelsea to assess Hudson-Odoi

12th April 2019, 16:19 by Jack Ogalbe

Chelsea will assess Callum Hudson-Odoi before deciding whether or not to field him on Sunday at Liverpool.

The winger sat out Thursday's 1-0 Europa League win at Slavia Prague, with Maurizio Sarri insisting he needed to rest, and the time off on the back of Monday's 2-0 victory over West Ham may prove long enough to recover.

Either Willian or Pedro could start on the right should Hudson-Odoi not be deemed ready, with Gonzalo Higuain and Eden Hazard also featuring in attack.

Left-back Emerson may also sit out after missing the game in the Czech Republic, while Sarri also faces a difficult decision in midfield.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek excelled in the recent home wins over Brighton and West Ham. However, the Italian may favour a more cautious approach and could field Mateo Kovacic or even Ross Barkley alongside Jorginho and N'Golo Kante.
