Chelsea mannger Frank Lampard has lavish praises at Callum Hudson-Odoi after getting on the score sheet against Burnley on Saturday.

Hudson-Odoi became the youngest player to score his first Premier League goal for Chelsea as they thrashed Burnley 3-0 at Stamford Bridge to keep their top four hopes alive.

The 19-year-old put up a mouthwatering performance and his effort was praised by Lampard who believes the youngster need to perform consistently in order to achieve his full potential.

The Chelsea boss told reporters: "For Callum to score in the six-yard box is far more exciting for me than for him to score from 35 yards, without a doubt. Because it means that he's prepared to run the extra bit to sprint in there.

"And that wasn't the only time he did it; he did it on one of the early chances we had in the first half. He was doing it, recovering, going higher up the pitch at the right times.

"And his overall performance was an absolute statement for Callum of what he needs to do.

"That was the real Hudson-Odoi and what he can be because there's obviously more to come. But I thought his goal was brilliant for him, and if he can carry on doing that, then it's a serious player we have in Callum."
