Hudson-Odoi scores as Chelsea progress in Europa League

Callum Hudson-Odoi scored a brilliant second-half goal as Chelsea cruised into the Europa League last 16 with victory over Malmo at Stamford Bridge.

The London club, who led 2-1 from the first leg, started slowly but improved markedly after the break.

French forward Olivier Giroud gave them the lead on the night by tapping home, before Ross Barkley added the second with a floating free kick.

The highly-rated winger then drove in from the right before firing in a late third.

Hudson-Odoi started with influential playmaker Hazard on the bench, and he did not disappoint as he produced an impressive performance on the night.

This was his first start since the FA Cup fourth-round game against Nottingham Forest at the start of January, and his selection was greeted with one of the biggest cheers of the night.
