Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi full of pride reaching 100-game landmark

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is delighted to have reached 100 games for the club.

He brought up 100 appearances for the Blues in the victory against Aston Villa, a landmark he had been closing in on for some time.

"I got told a couple of times by my brother that I was pretty close," he told Chelsea's website. "I didn't know it was that game specifically so when I found out, it was a bit of a surprise but a happy feeling for me as well.

"I was buzzing about it but the fact we won on the day was more important. It was a good result but obviously making 100 appearances for this club is pretty special too.

"It was a dream of mine to get the opportunity to play my first game for Chelsea, coming on against Newcastle, and 100 appearances later has just gone so quick.

"It's a crazy feeling when you're in the Academy and thinking about playing just one game for Chelsea, to see the atmosphere and how it is to play on the pitch.

"So to play 100 games for the club that you've wanted to play for from the beginning is an amazing feeling."
