If they want Champions League football next season, Chelsea surely have to win the Europa League? That’s what a lot of the fans seem to think, even if they do have a game in hand which could see them go 4th. Regardless of the Premier League, progression beyond Dynamo Kiev is a must and the fans all want to see Callum Hudson-Odoi feature.

With the Ukrainian side travelling to London later this evening, the fans are all expecting to put this tie to bed inside 90 minutes, with the return leg in Kiev next week not one that they want to be worrying about. To do that, the fans are desperate for Maurizio Sarri to go with Callum Hudson-Odoi, who has had to settle for appearances in the Europa League with Sarri overlooking him domestically.
If the Blues had it their way, the likes of Pedro and Willian would be binned off in an instant if it meant they could have a starting front three of Eden Hazard, Hudson-Odoi and Gonzalo Higuain, yet that just hasn’t happened for them. With every game he plays, though, the Stamford Bridge faithful’s calls for their 18-year-old winger to become a regular grow stronger, and with a solid display tonight he can again have the fans demanding he gets some Premier League game time.
