When it comes to 17-year-olds in the English game, few are held in higher regard than Chelsea attacker Callum Hudson-Odoi.
The young Englishman has absolutely bundles of talent, and has already made two Premier League appearances for the Chelsea first team this season.
Hudson-Odoi scored another two goals in the FA Youth Cup for Chelsea’s Under-18 team on Tuesday night, meanwhile, which saw the Blues progress to a seventh final in a row.
The attacker has also managed six goals in eight appearances for Chelsea’s Under-23 side during a very productive season.
Chelsea’s first team are not going to finish in the top four in the Premier League this season, and as a result, it would not be a surprise to see head coach Antonio Conte hand first-team chances to some of the younger players at the club.
One of those desperate for some action is Hudson-Odoi, and it would be fair to say that the Chelsea supporters, who are huge fans of the teenager, want to see him in action for the senior side.

Conte should play the youngsters, since there is nothing left to play for.
