Callum Hudson-Odoi was shockingly pulled off the draw today after coming off the bench during the start of the second half
Chelsea shared points with Southampton following a disappointing display from the visitors.
Both Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham were pulled off the game during the second half.
Hudson-Odoi’s was more painful as he only came on during the start of the second half to be subbed off so as to install Hakim Ziyech who has been without games for weeks.
Its clear both Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham weren’t happy they couldn’t see the end of the game as Hudson-Odoi even looked more sad than Tammy Abraham who started the game until he was withdrawn.

Chelsea will battle Atletico Madrid on Tuesday for the UCL round of 16 and Thomas Tuchel disclosed it’s more likely to have Callum Hudson-Odoi starting the game.
“We brought in Hudson-Odoi but I was not happy with his attitude, energy and counter-pressing,” Tuchel said after the game today.
“I took him off and we demand 100%, I feel he is not in the right shape to help us.
“It was a hard decision but tomorrow it is forgotten and he has all possibilities to start against Atletico Madrid.
“It is always a big week so it is mixed feelings at the moment, it will not be easier to score against Atletico.”
