REVEALED: Why Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi omitted for Tottenham draw

Chelsea fans might have been scratching their heads when Callum Hudson-Odoi was left out of Sunday's clash with Tottenham.

The winger was superb in the midweek win over Rennes, scoring the opening goal in the 2-1 victory.

But Frank Lampard chose to rotate his squad for the Spurs clash to allow Christian Pulisic to make his return from injury, per Football.London.

The American was substituted on for Timo Werner after 74 minutes of the goalless draw.

Hudson-Odoi will hope to be in contention for Wednesday's meeting with Sevilla in the Champions League.
