Lampard urges Hudson-Odoi to snub Bayern Munich

The 28-year-old often divides opinion at Stamford Bridge due to his inconsistent displays and whether he can be the left-back for the foreseeable future under Sarri remains to be seen.

On Wednesday, a source told ESPN FC that Hudson-Odoi had no plans to sign a new contract at Chelsea as Bayern await a response to their fourth bid for the 18-year-old, understood to be in the region of £35 million. You are better off getting your chance and if you get that chance then you have to take it.

Giroud has only started six of Chelsea's 21 Premier League games this season, with Alvaro Morata leading the line for the Blues in 11 matches, but with the Spaniard likely to be out injured and potentially leaving the Bridge in the coming months after a torrid campaign then it's time for Sarri to put his faith in Giroud.

Chelsea will be without Ruben Loftus-Cheek for the Newcastle game as the midfielder deals with back pain, while Sarri confirmed that Cesc Fabregas would not be considered for selection as he waits to complete a move to Monaco. I don't know what to say, I do not know the situation. "So they didn't respect our club, I think".

"Of course, if Morata will go to another club we need a replacement".

"There are 300 players involved in the market and they need to think only to the next match otherwise it is impossible to play".

Sarri refused to comment on talk of a Chelsea swoop for his former Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain, who is on loan at AC Milan from Italian champions Juventus.

"The rest is up to him and his brother, his agent, who's talking to Leonardo, and I hope that he stays for as long as possible".

Hudson-Odoi, who made his first-team debut in the FA Cup in January a year ago, made a second successive start in the Carabao Cup first-leg defeat by Tottenham.

Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro are all regulars in Chelsea's starting line-up ahead of Hudson-Odoi, but Sarri recently said he was starting "to consider him at the same level". "It's normal", Sarri said. Now, he needs to improve in some movements without the ball.
