Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel explains decision to sub Hudson-Odoi vs Southampton & confirms Tammy Abraham is not injured

Chelsea held by Southampton

Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off played out a short time ago.

Said game saw Southampton host an in-form Chelsea side.

The Blues were unbeaten in six under Thomas Tuchel before taking on the Saints. Southampton, on the other hand, began the day down in 13th place having lost five in a row in the English top-flight.

Despite this, it would be Southampton who took the lead in the tie after Nathan Redmond played in Liverpool loanee Takumi Minamino before the Japanese international sat down to Chelsea players to fire into an empty net.

Said goal saw Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side head in at the break in the lead, despite barley getting out of their own half in the first 45.

Southampton’s lead didn’t last long, though, as Mason Mount, who was fouled by Danny Ings, converted a penalty less than 10 minutes into the second half.

Tuchel on Hudson-Odoi & Tammy Abraham

Following the Southampton game, Thomas Tuchel has provided an update on Tammy Abraham who was taken off at half-time with a reported ankle issue and could be seen icing it in the stands.

The German confirmed, though, that Abraham was not actually injured.

It would be Callum Hudson-Odoi who came on at the break for Abraham.

However, despite only coming on at half-time, CHO was brought off 76 minutes in, despite not appearing to be injured.

This created some speculation that the German was unhappy with Hudson-Odoi.

And when speaking in the same interview in which he provided an update on Abraham, he also confirmed that Hudson-Odoi was brought off because he was unhappy with his energy:
