Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi confident of playing return after international break

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is confident of a playing return after the international break.

The 18-year-old ruptured his Achilles during Chelsea's 2-2 draw against Burnley in April, and missed the remainder of the season as well as England's Nations League campaign.

He underwent successful surgery shortly after and spent the summer in rehabilitation.

"Recovery has gone really well and I feel good," he told Sky Sports News.

"Hopefully I can be back after the international break. We have to just get things going and hopefully everything goes to plan.

"I was scared it could take longer but really recovery has gone very well and I am really happy everything has gone to plan.

"Now I just can't wait to get back on the pitch and start playing again."
