Callum Hudson-Odoi: Chelsea must be ruthless; we want to be a nuisance

Callum Hudson-Odoi says Chelsea must become more ruthless.

Chelsea blew two points in Saturday's 3-3 draw with Southampton.

The 19-year-old, speaking to the Chelsea match day programme, said: “We want to be lethal.

“We want to be ruthless - clinical at one end and making sure we're not conceding silly goals.

“We want it so every team that plays us are scared of us. We want to be a nuisance of a team."

Of his personal aims, the winger added: “Last season wasn't the year I wanted.

“I wasn't playing as much, wasn't assisting goals or scoring. It wasn't the case that I was even proud of my own performances. I thought to myself, 'I need to have a way better season.'

“I need to score more goals, get more assists.

“You want the other team to fear you. You want them to think, 'This player could do anything at any moment.'

“You want to be one of those players that everyone thinks - we're playing against him today, it's going to be tough. You want to make defenders fear you."
