Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi: That's where I prefer to play

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi was delighted to score in their 7-0 rout of Norwich City.

Hudson-Odoi was happy playing in an advanced role on the day..

"We came with the right mindset," Hudson-Odoi told the club's website. "We knew we wanted to win the game trying to make a statement there as well. We're trying to score goals and trying to create as much as possible but at the back it's a clean sheet so we did really well.

"All of us know how each other plays," he added. "We knew we had to combine as we do in training.

"Norwich were sitting back a bit. It could have been difficult but we found a way through and obviously it is good that we got the seven goals."

Hudson-Odoi was one of the front-three yesterday rather than in the wing-back role he has also been asked to fulfil, and he did himself no harm for being given more chances there with his display on the Stamford Bridge pitch.

"My aim when playing in the front three is to score goals and make assists," he said, "but contributing to the team as much as possible will help me no matter what. So I think to myself that I've got to work hard, keep improving, keep showing the work off the ball as well, but it is helping by scoring and making assists as well.

"That is my favourite position, I've always played there. No matter where I play I will give my best whatever position it is but I feel most comfortable there. I have been playing there all my life so I know the position very well."
