"I don't know if Hudson-Odoi is able for the Premier League at 18, especially in a big team", he said.

Pedro is expected to miss Chelsea's next three matchesPedro has been ruled out of Chelsea's game at Crystal Palace, where the Blues are also expected to be without Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Maurizio Sarri says he is relishing the intense nature of the Premier League's winter schedule, but warns it is "very difficult" to play every three days, Sky Sports reports.

Chelsea are yet to enter into negotiations with Hazard's camp regarding a new deal and Sarri says the time has come for the club to be decisive.

Andreas Christensen is a doubt with a hamstring injury that kept him out of the Boxing Day win at Watford so I don't see Sarri making any changes in the middle of defence.

A large selection of Chelsea fans are desperate to see academy products Hudson-Odoi and midfield teammate Ruben Loftus-Cheek develop into key players at Stamford Bridge. I am happy with him in this position but he can can still play as a winger, of course.

"So maybe in terms of quality we played better against Leicester but at Watford we played with a great level of application and determination".

'The second problem was Odoi, it's not a serious problem but I don't think he will play in the next match'.

Asked if he thinks Hazard has already made a decision, Merson said: "I would say yes".

Chelsea attacker Callum Hudson-Odoi is reportedly on the radar of Bayern Munich ahead of the January transfer window.

Goalkeeper: I don't think there is much debate over who will start in goal as summer signing Kepa is certain to retain the gloves ahead of Willy Caballero this weekend.
