Chelsea midfielder Barkley welcomes back Hudson-Odoi

Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley has welcomed back Callum Hudson-Odoi to action.

The teenage winger returned in the win over Grimsby after five months out. Barkley is excited to play alongside the 18-year-old once again.

Barkley said, "Last season he was growing with the minutes he was getting, and the goals he was getting. The more he was on the pitch you could see he was getting better and better.

"He had a little setback but now he's back and looking extra sharp. He has been putting the extra yards in in training. On Wednesday he was a bit frustrated because he could have had a hat-trick, but it was good to see him back playing the full 90 and scoring as well."
