Callum Hudson-Odoi: Maurizio Sarri confirms Chelsea forward will be out for minimum three months with Achilles injury

Callum Hudson-Odoi faces a minimum three months out injured, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has confirmed.

Hudson-Odoi, the England winger, suffered an Achilles injury during Monday’s 2-2 draw with Burnley, with the youngster forced off before half-time of the Premier League clash.

He underwent successful surgery on Tuesday evening, the 18-year-old confirmed on social media.

It was a cruel end to a promising breakthrough season for one of Chelsea and England’s best talents, with Hudson-Odoi immediately ruled out the remainder of the 2018/19 domestic campaign, as well as this summer’s Nations League finals, in which the Three Lions are partaking.
