Hudson-Odoi will be hoping to feature when Chelsea FC travel to Dynamo Kiev in the return leg of their Europa League last 16 clash on Thursday night, having won the first leg 3-0.

A hat trick from Olivier Giroud, along with strikes from Marcos Alonso and Callum Hudson-Odoi, built on Chelsea's 3-0 victory over the same opponents at Stamford Bridge last week to book their place in the last eight with an 8-0 aggregate win. There are muddy patches dotted around the uneven surface, a legacy of the harsh Ukrainian winter, and fears that areas of the pitch watered prior to the game will freeze as temperatures plummet around the 8pm kick-off, making it even more treacherous.

"The pitch is not good and I think that it's really risky to play any football here". "The pitch is not good".

House approves measure calling for Mueller report to be made public
Despite the House's vote on Thursday, the decision of how much of Mueller's report becomes public still rests in Barr's hands. Justin Amash, R-Mich., Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Thomas Massie, R-Ky. and Paul Gosar, R- Ariz.) voting "present".

"It's a mad one because a young English player at Chelsea at that age then you really want him to sign that long-term contract". I think that it's risky, really unsafe. We have to play on this pitch.

"I'm very pleased with all of the goals I scored and the assist I give to Callum, we gave a great team performance today", he told BT Sport after the match.

"We scored after five minutes which was a very hard situation for the opponents. We played a wonderful first half and managed the game in the second half". "There isn't another solution, but I can not understand why Uefa are so, so (concerned) about having to present the player list at a certain minute, but then we have to play in such a bad pitch. Now it's very, very risky". "Sometimes that's not possible". "It means we are in the final, that would make me happy and Napoli are in the final and that would make me happy. It will be hard to play our football, but we have to adapt".
