Chelsea played out a 1-1 draw with Brighton at Stamford Bridge last night, a result which sees them drop two more points as they are now 8 points behind Man City in the title race.
Romelu Lukaku put the Blues ahead with a first half header but Thomas Tuchel’s charges struggled to gain control of the game from then on and Brighton left it late as former Man Utd and Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck headed home Martin Cucurella’ cross in the 91st minute to break Chelsea hearts.
Chelsea fans have pointed out one player as the reason for the dropped points and that player is 21-year old Callum Hudson-Odoi who yet again failed to capitalize on a key moment in the game.
Hudson-Odoi was set free on the counter by Callum Hudson-Odoi early in the second half and he found himself in a 2 v 1 situation with Mason Mount as company but the youngster failed to either score or find Mount with a simple pass.
That moment was a major highlight of the player’s poor performance on the night. Below are some of the comments made by Chelsea fans on Twitter: 👇🏿
Callum Hudson Odoi is simply not good enough to play for Chelsea. Costed us 2 points against Man United and now Brighton. We don't need a player with one good performance in 4months…— Gabby®️ (@CFCGabby) December 30, 2021
There’s no way any Chelsea fan can tell me with a straight face that Hudson-Odoi is a better winger than Pulisic— pranav (@pro_rao) December 29, 2021
Hudson-Odoi very poor tonight, not good enough.— Simon Phillips (@siphillipssport) December 29, 2021
Frankly speaking Hudson Odoi has cost us a lot of points. The misses against Burnley, Utd, Everton and Brighton have proven really costly.— Ononso (@Orangefowl) December 30, 2021
Collum Hudson-odoi is hunting our club single handedly we said we are the hunters he didn't get the memo— mike Kibet (@itsmikekibet) December 30, 2021
We had chances to kill the game but the stupidity and retrogression in Hudson Odoi career will not make it work…..Annoying player 🙃— Davis (@SonOfProvidenx) December 30, 2021
Woke up feeling an intense amount of hatred for hudson odoi— RAPH🐮 (@w3rnerstan) December 30, 2021
Ghana should call Hudson-Odoi for Afcon let know how many we are in January at Chelsea— Chukwu Stanley Alex (@ChukwustanleyA1) December 30, 2021
Football goes beyond doing well in one game and costing your team points in 3 or 4 games. Football is about consistency and that is difficult for Callum Hudson-Odoi— Laredo (@laredo80) December 30, 2021
I didn't watch the match, neither have I been online for some days but from the reactions of the TL, I can deduce the Hudson-Odoi is back to default settings.— Ifeanyichukwu ☢️ (@Myka_veli) December 30, 2021
