Hudson-Odoi And Armando Broja Scored As Chelsea Played A 1-1 Draw In An “In-house Contest”

After their planned friendly match was cancelled because of Covid-19, the blues became creative as Thomas Tuchel staged an In-house contest of “Chelsea Vs Chelsea.”


Chelsea players were grouped into two teams with one team putting on blue bibs on top of their training kits and the other team donning only the Chelsea training kits.


The match was for 45 minutes and there was no break or switching of sides.


The bibbed side were dominant early in the contest with Davide Zappacosta dangerously running down the wing to put in a cross which nobody could connect with.


Barkely also played well for the Bibbed team but it was Callum Hudson-Odoi who scored for the bibbed side.


First Goal

Hudson-Odoi collected a pass from Dujon Sterling and he attacked the opposing team with pace and his strike got pass Kepa Arrizabalaga and into the net.

The Equalizer

The other Chelsea team responded ten minutes after they conceded as Hakim Ziyech found Armando Broja in the box. The Albanian striker put his shot beyond the Jaime Cumming to make the score 1-1.


The in-house contest ended 1-1 with Hudson-Odoi being one of the standout performers. Many reports have suggested that Hudson-Odoi is settled at Chelsea despite many speculations linking him with a move away from the club. Some sources claim that he is in a very good shape physically and he is looking to nail down a spot in the Chelsea first team this season.


Broja is making a statement with his performances in training as he intends to be part of Chelsea’s first team this season.
