Frank Lampard names one starter early for desperation clash against Aston Villa in 48 Hours
Frank Lampard has confirmed that Callum Hudson-Odoi will play against Aston Villa in the match in just 48 hours time.
That’s according to the club’s Fifth Stand app, which has exclusive questions to the manager, as quoted by the Athletic’s Simon Johnson in the following Tweet:
He also praised the impact of the winger, who had come on against half time against Arsenal in the disastrous 3-1 loss.
To be honest, he would likely have got a shot even if he hadn’t been excellent against Arsenal. The whole team will need to be refreshed, for the sake of fitness as much as anything.
Christian Pulisic wasn’t good enough today, and Timo Werner was so poor he was taken off at half time. Callum Hudson-Odoi will get the chance he’s needed now, and it’s down to him to take it.
Staying fit will be key, but so will challenging teams like Villa very seriously down his flank, winning one on ones and putting the ball in the box.
