Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is delighted with the performance of Callum Hudson-Odoi following their 5-0 walloping of Dynamo Kiev in the Europa League on Thursday night.

The Blues had the cigars out in a thoroughly lop-sided affair, which included a perfect hat-trick from Olivier Giroud, as those pre-match fears over a potential minefield at the Olympic Stadium proved unfounded.

Marcos Alonso got the other goal for the Blues before Hudson-Odoi completed the rout in the 79th minute.

The 18-year-old attacker broke clear off his marker before slotting the ball past Denys Boyko for his fourth goal in Europe this season.

Chelsea won the match 8-0 on aggregate after last week’s 3-0 win in London.

On Hudson-Odoi’s seventh Chelsea start, Sarri added: “He played very well - better in the second half because we found the spaces & Callum in the spaces is really a very good player. I’m happy for him but he has to keep the feet on the ground because he can improve more."

Hudson-Odoi has scored four goals in the competition so far.
