Callum Hudson-Odoi reveals Chelsea’s ‘main aims’ for the rest of the season

Callum Hudson-Odoi has revealed Chelsea’s ‘main aims’ for the rest of the season with Thomas Tuchel’s side currently in the top four and still in contention for the Champions League and FA Cup.

Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard at the end of January and is yet to taste defeat in his first 14 games in charge at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have climbed up to fourth in the table and recorded an impressive 3-0 aggregate victory over La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Last weekend, the west London side also booked a meeting with Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-finals after beating Sheffield United 2-0 in the quarters at Stamford Bridge.

And Hudson-Odoi has admitted Chelsea are aiming to cement their place in the top four, go as far in Europe as possible and also get to the final of the FA Cup.

‘We want to win a trophy, try and get to the FA Cup final, try and get as far in the Champions League as possible and try and finish in the top four in the Premier League so that’s definitely our main aims for Chelsea,’ Hudson-Odoi told Sky Sports.

Hudson-Odoi has already earned three caps for England but missed out on Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad for upcoming World Cup qualifiers against San Marino, Albania and Poland.

The 20-year-old has instead joined up with the Under-21s for the start of their European Under-21 Championship but hasn’t given up hope on making the senior squad for this summer’s rescheduled Euro 2020 tournament.

‘For England, definitely trying to make the Euros squad I think that’s a massive opportunity,’ he added. ‘There won’t be many times that that will happen you playing for your country in your home country in such a big tournament. 

‘I think that’s definitely a major thing that hopefully I can do well for the rest of the season and get back into the squad for it. But we take it game it by game, day by day and hopefully everything goes well.’
