Former Chelsea attacker Joe Cole feels Callum Hudson-Odoi is one of the best in the Premier League when he is at the top of his game. Cole has backed the youngster to do well in the coming weeks.



Hudson-Odoi came off the bench against Malmo on Wednesday in Chelsea’s Champions League group game, and put in a stellar display for the Blues. The duo of Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku could be out for a few weeks, and with fixtures coming thick and fast, Hudson-Odoi could get more playing time.

Cole feels Hudson-Odoi has a few big weeks ahead of him as he has the ability to impress in a more attacking role instead of the right wing-back position.

"Callum has to step up. He affected the game tonight and he needs to continue to do this. Callum’s been playing the right wing-back position which is arguably the toughest position to get to at Chelsea because you have got the club captain Azpilicueta and Reece James who is one of the best in the country,” Cole said during BT Sport's coverage of the match.

"He wants to play in that front three and I feel like he has the opportunity to do that now. He needs to keep being positive - get the ball and drive. In full flight there’s not many better than him. He can go both ways. He’s really believing in himself and getting back to the core of what he is as a footballer because when he gets the ball and drives inside and out he can be unstoppable. It’s a big few weeks for him."
