Hudson-Odoi: Chelsea more positive under Lampard

Callum Hudson-Odoi says Chelsea is a more positive place this season under manager Frank Lampard.

After a prolonged and very public chase by Bayern Munich, there is relief all round at Stamford Bridge that Hudson-Odoi has committed to a new deal.

Maurizio Sarri, who took Chelsea to third and won the Europa League, has left for Juventus, and Hudson-Odoi told the London Evening Standard of his replacement Frank Lampard: "The only thing [that has changed] is that we've got a more positive vibe in the changing room and on the pitch.

"We are all happy I think because the manager has come in, he used to be a great player himself at the club, and now he has come in and we all give respect to what he has done for the club before. I think the camp now is just more happy, more positive."
