Watch: Pedro urges Chelsea fans to give Callum Hudson-Odoi standing ovation


Pedro may have lost his place in Chelsea‘s starting XI to Callum Hudson-Odoi, but the forward was determined to ensure his younger team-mate was given the praise he deserved after the Blues beat West Ham 2-0 on Monday night.

Eden Hazard may have stolen the headlines with a magnificent opener before adding a second late on, but the win was also notable for Hudson-Odoi making a second consecutive start in the Premier League after forcing his way into Maurizio Sarri’s side.

The 18-year-old has enjoyed a meteoric rise in recent months and again impressed, almost scoring after a sublime pass from Hazard.

Sarri decided to replace Hudson-Odoi with Pedro for the final five minutes, and the Spaniard urged Chelsea’s fans to show their appreciation of the youngster’s display.
