Chelsea fans have been calling for Hudson-Odoi’s inclusion since his impressive pre-season performances.

But despite seeing the likes of Willian and Pedro struggle for form, Sarri is adamant that Hudson-Odoi must improve further before earning a start in England’s top flight.

Sarri said: “I don’t know if Hudson-Odoi is able for the Premier League at 18, especially in a big team.

“If he’s good enough to play in a big team in the Premier League at 18 then he could be the best player in Europe in two years.

“I think he played very well but the type of match was for his characteristics as they had ten men after seven minutes.

“We only needed to play in the offensive phase, he’s very able to do this but I want to see him in a match when he has to play in a defensive phase.”

Sarri also hailed Chelsea’s response after their 3-1 drubbing against Spurs last weekend, adding: “I think we approached the match very well, so I am very happy with this.

“The last three matches we had problems with this. This was really very good. Before the match we knew were in the first of the group after the BATE result, so it wasn’t easy to find a big motivation.”
