​Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi praises Mount after Rennes assist

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi was full of praise for his teammate Mason Mount.

Hudson-Odoi scored an excellent opening goal in his side's 2-1 win over Rennes in the Champions League in midweek.

He was set up by Mount, whose excellent pass allowed the winger to get a straightforward one vs one opportunity against the goalkeeper.

The England U21 starlet made no mistake with his finish, but he believes the credit for the goal goes to Mount.

"I know Mason, he works really hard and presses well in the middle of the pitch so as soon as he got the ball I knew I was in front of the full-back," Hudson-Odoi told BT Sport.

"His vision is amazing and [I knew] he'd pick me out so I got in there and got the goal."
