Hudson-Odoi has also been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, with Bayern Munich reportedly interested.

Cesc Fabregas missed a penalty and then cried on what could be his final Chelsea appearance as the FA Cup holders beat Nottingham Forest in the third round.

However, Hudson-Odoi, who set up both of Alvaro Morata's goals against Forest in the FA Cup, said that he would "hopefully" be getting more first-team football at Chelsea following his latest performance.

He nearly capped off the performance with a goal from the penalty spot, but his effort was saved by Luke Steele. The midfielder would claim a further Premier League crown two years later, as well as an FA Cup last season.

The teenage winger nearly got one himself when he danced into the box only to see his shot blocked by a good low save by Steele.

He received a wonderful reception from the Stamford Bridge faithful, and he appeared to get emotional as he exited the pitch.

Sarri gave Loftus-Cheek a chance to prove his form and fitness by picking him in the starting line-up, but the England playmaker cut a frustrated figure as he left the field before half-time, struggling with a back injury that has hampered his season in recent weeks.
