Hudson-Odoi happy with Chelsea wing-back role

Callum Hudson-Odoi insists he's happy with his new role at Chelsea.

The attacker has been playing at wing-back under manager Thomas Tuchel.

"When I'm playing in that channel, it's about helping in attack as well by providing different options of scoring or assisting," he told the club's website. "I try to find different positions to help the team by staying wide, coming short or making runs to create more space.

"The way I look at it now is I'm in the situation where I have to help out much more in defence rather than attack. It's up and down and it gets tiring at times but you're always pushing for the clean sheet because if they don't score, they don't win.

"It's much more of a defensive mindset for me trying to keep clean sheets but it's started really well."
