Hudson-Odoi and James to return to action

Fit-again Chelsea duo Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James will return to action for the development side in the Premier League 2 match against Brighton Friday.

Neither player has featured this season, but winger Hudson-Odoi has recovered from an Achilles injury and the versatile James is back in training after an ankle injury.

Both players will feature for Andy Myers’ side in the game against Brighton at Stamford Bridge.

Hudson-Odoi, 18, forced his way into the Maurizio Sarri’s last season, making a total of 28 appearances, scoring five goals and earning a full cap for England.

James, 19, has yet to play a first-team game for the Blues but impressed while on loan at Championship side Wigan last season.
