Callum Hudson-Odoi admitted he has been disappointed by his first season playing under new Chelsea boss Frank Lampard and has set himself a goal of being more involved in terms of goals and assists next season.

The Chelsea winger admitted the 2019/20 campaign – in which he started just seven Premier League games, scoring once and providing five assists – had not gone to plan from his perspective, even though the team did secure a top-four finish.

With fresh competition arriving in the form of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, and potentially Kai Havertz also joining from Bayer Leverkusen, it could be a tough ask for Hudson-Odoi to become a first-team regular at Stamford Bridge next season.

The 19-year-old England international is not fazed by the challenge, however, and is determined to put things right in the upcoming campaign.

‘For me personally, I think it is not the season that I would have liked to have,’ he told ESPN. ‘I could have worked on so many aspects of my game to become a better player.

‘I’m working hard every day and training hard every day but sometimes in a game, you want to score goals, assist goals, help the team as much possible, and I feel like this year I wasn’t doing enough of that.

‘So I feel myself, next season, when it comes, I have to try and get more goals and more assists, help the team as much as possible and hit the goals I set myself.

‘I think to myself that when in games, I’ve had a couple of chances where I know I should be hitting the target or scoring.

‘To myself, I feel disappointed because I know I’m capable of scoring goals and capable of assisting goals so when I don’t do it, I feel frustrated because I know what I can do and what I can’t do.

‘For me, it was more of a personal thing where, ‘Cal, you can do better, you’ve got to keep going, keep working hard, try and get the goals and assists and help the team as much as possible.’
