Callum Hudson-Odoi: Dangerous to put pressure on Chelsea teenager, says Sarri

Callum Hudson Odoi scored Chelsea’s third goal against Dynamo Kiev

"Now we have to be careful".

The midfielder became United's youngest ever Champions League player when he came off the bench in Wednesday's win at PSG.

"In the past, we had a long period of results, and then suddenly two weeks of disasters".

"I remember very well that after Wolves scored to make it 1-1 we stopped playing", Sarri said.

Wolves will recall goalkeeper Rui Patricio after he was left out of the win over Cardiff last weekend but Ryan Bennett starts a two-game ban so Romain Saiss is expected to start in defence. We stopped after 50-55 minutes for 20 minutes at Wolverhampton and that was enough to lose the game.

Maurizio Sarri has eased the pressure that was put on his shoulders following their League Cup final defeat to Man City as they've won their last four games in all competitions since the disappointment at Wembley last month.

"We were in trouble and stopped completely to play".

I think to have pressure when you are 18 is very unsafe for the player. If you stop to play against Manchester City, you can lose 6-0. When you're 18 the target is to improve tactically, mentally and physically.

"I need to study that match very well".

"The beginning of the season was, 'Oh, my God, Chelsea is learning very quickly the philosophy of the manager, it's incredible.' Then after a few months, 'Oh, Chelsea didn't learn anything yet, Sarri-ball is not good enough'".

"This match (against Wolves), and when we play the match against Brighton".

The divisions in the fanbase, mainly between the online fans who tend pro-Sarri, and the match-going punters who, by and large, have never taken to him, have reached really poisonous levels at times this season.

"But I think we are fighting and we will be fighting for the top four until the last minute of the last match".
