Callum Hudson-Odoi has confirmed that his season is over, after rupturing his Achilles against Burnley on Monday evening.

Chelsea were held to a frustrating 2-2 draw by the Clarets, denting their hopes of a top-four finish in the process.

The result wasn’t the only negative of the night, however, as Hudson-Odoi limped off shortly before half-time.

Although the injury was not thought to be too serious at the time, the 18-year-old took to Twitter to confirm the Achilles problem:

It is an undoubted blow for Chelsea ahead of the final weeks of the Premier League and Europa League run-in.

Hudson-Odoi had made himself more of a regular in recent times, impressing out on the right wing.

There has been constant speculation surrounding his future this year – whether or not he has played his last game for the Blues remains to be seen.
