Callum Hudson-Odoi, a winger for Nottingham Forest, came very close to winning the game against Chelsea, his old team.

Callum Hudson-Odoi gave Nottingham Forest a 2-1 lead over Chelsea, but goals in the dying minutes from Nicolas Jackson and Raheem Sterling gave Mauricio Pochettino’s team the victory and all three points.

During the previous summer transfer window, the 23-year-old moved from Stamford Bridge to the City Ground, and it has been a good move for him.

Hudson-Odoi has made 28 Premier League appearances this season and is currently receiving consistent playing time.

The England international was on loan at Bayer Leverkusen last season and only made 14 appearances in the Bundesliga.

Callum Hudson-Odoi on his Chelsea goal

Hudson-Odoi spent the majority of his career with Chelsea, where he rose through the ranks.

The Forest player did concede, though, that it felt wonderful to score against his old team.

“Credit to the boys,” he stated in an interview with Premier League Productions (via BBC Sport) following the game. They put forth a lot of effort, so it’s unfortunate.

Playing against and catching up with the boys I know was a pleasant experience. Getting a goal against my old squad was good.

“In football, you never know.” We still have one game to go, but hopefully we’re safe now and can concentrate on Burnley the following weekend.

Will Callum Hudson-Odoi’s sale by Chelsea be regretted?

Chelsea may regret their decision to sell Hudson-Odoi in the future. After his goal against the Blues today, it almost happened.

This season, he has scored eight goals in the Premier League—more than, say, Mykhailo Mudryk, the club’s most costly acquisition to date.

Hudson-Odoi was only acquired by Chelsea for £3 million, and at just 23 years old, he should also get better.

Going ahead, not much will be said about Hudson-Odoi if Mudryk continues to provide. However, if the former Chelsea player doesn’t stop performing, then people will start to doubt him.

On Wednesday, Chelsea will play Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League at the Amex Stadium.

This is a crucial game for Chelsea, who, with a victory, may climb to sixth place and seriously consider themselves for the Europa League next season.

Naturally, in order for Mauricio Pochettino’s team to win, Newcastle United must lose to Manchester United.

Chelsea is currently behind Eddie Howe’s team, but only by a single goal differential.

On the final day of the season, Chelsea hosts Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge following their journey to the Amex. Considering that the club will be reviewing the campaign, this may be Pochettino’s last game in charge. The Telegraph reports that this will be the case. Although the Argentine has been linked to AC Milan, it doesn’t appear likely that he will join the team given his salary.

Chelsea needs the three points, especially if Newcastle defeats Manchester United, in order to secure the final Europa League position.

Paul Merson, however, does not believe the Blues can complete the task.

Predicting the outcome of the game for Sportskeeda, the Arsenal legend said: “Brighton have also picked up some form recently and have become a much better team at the back end of the season with nothing to play for.

“I think this will be an entertaining game of football so I’m going for a 2-2 draw

Paul Merson on Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Chelsea

Chelsea needs the three points to guarantee the final Europa League spot, particularly if Newcastle defeats Manchester United.

But Paul Merson doesn’t think the Blues can finish the job.

According to a CaughtOffside story, Pochettino is certain he will be in the Stamford Bridge dugout for the upcoming season.

Nonetheless, the former manager of Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain still has two games left to manage this season.

That optimism might rapidly fade if things do not go as planned and Chelsea ends up missing out on Europe.

Is Mauricio Pochettino in a safe place?

You can see why the 52-year-old is not freaking out right now.

Most of the control over qualifying for Europe lies with his team. Although it is not a given—United winning the FA Cup could complicate matters—if that happens, Pochettino will most likely have a strong chance of staying in west London past this summer.

If they don’t succeed there, though, it wouldn’t be shocking if Chelsea fired their boss.

According to Simon Jordan, one Chelsea player has improved significantly over the past six weeks.

Notwithstanding the patchy results, Chelsea has been moving forward as a team overall in 2024.

Only 25 points were earned by Mauricio Pochettino’s team from their first 19 Premier League games of the year. After a somewhat chaotic first half of the season, they were ranked tenth in the division standings.

But after halfway through the season, the Blues had played 17 league games and amassed a much-improved 32 points. With two games left, they are now up to eighth in the standings.

Chelsea man, according to Simon Jordan, has gotten better.

According to TalkSPORT expert Simon Jordan, Cole Palmer of Chelsea has improved since the beginning of April.

The 22-year-old attacking playmaker has, according to the Chelsea Chronicle, been Stamford Bridge’s most notable player the whole season. The England player has, nevertheless, scored eight goals in seven Premier League games since the beginning of April.

Jordan told talkSPORT, “At first, I kind of had reservations about him (Palmer) because I thought there’s no way that [Pep] Guardiola just lets him go because he can’t manage the kid’s expectations.”
