Alan Shearer and Ian Wright fires warning to Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi for his poor performance in the club’s 1-1 draw against Brighton.

Alan Shearer and Ian Wright have both scolded Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi for his performance in the club’s 1-1 draw against Brighton.

But former striker Shearer said Hudson-Odoi lacked energy and that Tuchel must now arrest their worry slide, while fellow ex-forward Wright was left aghast at one piece of play which saw the 21-year-old kill the momentum in a promising attack by passing the ball all the way back to the defence. 

Hudson-Odoi I thought he had a really poor game this evening,’ Shearer told Premier League Productions.

‘You’re looking for some energy, you’re looking for a burst of pace to go past the defender and it never happened.

‘It’s his [Tuchel’s] job to sort it out because we can see it happening on the pitch, we saw it on Saturday against Manchester City, we saw it again against Brighton, it’s not a happy camp and that is one of the reasons, no doubt about it.’

Meanwhile, referencing the incident in the second half which saw Hudson-Odoi pass the ball all the way back to the defence, Wright said: ‘This was a perfect opportunity. Look at [Romelu] Lukaku, you see his arms up in he air.

‘Hudson-Odoi in that instance, he’s got a runner outside him, he’s onside, you play it to the runner, he plays it in and Lukaku might get his goal, all of a sudden Chelsea get themselves going.

‘His decision there to stop, come back and pass it all the way back, I can’t believe what I’m seeing.’

Shearer then reiterated his point that there is an ‘issue’ in the Chelsea dressing room between the players following the lack of celebration from Lukaku, Hudson-Odoi and midfielder N’Golo Kante to Ziyech’s goal.
