Callum Hudson-Odoi is motivated to improve his performances under Thomas Tuchel, saying he wants to be the player that registers more goals and assist often.

The 20-year-old struggled to seal a permanent place during Frank Lampard’s reign, but since Tuchel took over at Stamford Bridge, he has been a more prominent figure, starting five out of six matches.

However, the winger Odoi feels he can become the player that causes opposing defenders a lot of nightmares.

He told Chelsea’s official website: “You want to be that player who every team fears and where you have a target to get a goal or an assist for the team in every match you play, to help the team as much as possible because that contributes at the end of the game.

"You scoring or assisting helps the team win so I look at it like that.

“If I can get a goal one game and then maybe the next game I get an assist and the next game a goal again, it’s helpful for all aspects. I want to be one of those players that you know is regularly on the scoresheet.”

Hudson-Odoi added: “I haven’t set a specific target for myself but I just try to score as many as possible.

"It’s good to know we’ve got the players around who are capable of getting the ball into the back post as well for those tap-ins or finding cutbacks or playing crucial passes to get you in on goal.

“I’ve just got to make sure I keep getting in those positions to try and get a shot away and hopefully that goes in the back of the net."
