This prospect, one which now sees Ruben Loftus-Cheek - who started during the World Cup for England - unable to find a way into Sarri's starting Premier League team, is said to have led Hudson-Odoi to look elsewhere for first-team opportunities. "It was only a reaction to the difficulties".
The 18-year-old star has been linked with a move away from the club in search of more playing time, but certainly impressed with his performance on Thursday.
Sarri will rest his key men so we should see Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger, Marcos Alonso, Jorginho, N'Golo Kante and Alvaro Morata given the night off. This was his first start since the defeat to Manchester City at Wembley.
"Maybe it's only a question of time, but Kante has to stay near to Jorginho, especially when the ball is on the other side". But Kante has to stay near to Jorginho. I had a good assist from my team-mates, I love this kind of ball behind the defence.
However, he says his lofty goal of turning Chelsea into the strongest side in Europe has not abated. "I had a meeting of 10 minutes, five minutes, individual", he said.

"You'll always remember me, huh?". "I am very happy with this because, in the last three matches, we had big problems to get into the match". The report adds that Bayern missed out on Sancho and don't want to lose out on someone they see as a future replacement for Franck Ribery.
"The targets are very clear in my mind: in the short period, to win something".
Sarri told journalists that he is expecting to make several chases for Thursday's clash with the Greek outfit, with his side now six points clear at the top of Group L.
"I think he played very well but the type of match was for his characteristics as they had 10 men after seven minutes".
Hudson-Odoi beat PAOK goalkeeper Alexandros Paschalakis at his near post with a low shot in the 60th minute for his first senior goal and become the Europa League's youngest scorer since 2009, celebrating the moment in front of a delighted Stamford Bridge. "Not easy to put him in the starting XI because, maybe, on the bench in the Premier League matches there was Moses or Pedro, so it's hard not to put that kind of player in the starting XI".
