What will be of greater concern to Chelsea fans is that it could also be the last time that Eden Hazard plays for the club.

Yet, Callum Hudson-Odoi has to keep going and achieve full recovery, whatever are the losses and disappointments. He has already shown his talent on the field and he will be able to continue the career after he is totally healthy.
