Thomas Tuchel Begs Hudson-Odoi to be Reliable

  Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, has revealed his conversation with Winger, Callum Hudson-Odoi, ahead of his side’s Champions League last-16, first-leg tie with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night at National Arena in Romania.

Why I Took Chelsea’s Penalty in 1-1 Draw Against Southampton – Mason Mount

Arsene Wenger Reacts to Tuchel Re-substitution of Hudson-Odoi in 1-1 Draw With Southampton
