Hudson-Odoi scores as Chelsea progress

Callum Hudson-Odoi scored as Chelsea eased into the Europa League last 16 with a 3-0 victory over Malmo in their second-leg tie at Stamford Bridge, winning 5-1 on aggregate.

Olivier Giroud netted in his fifth successive Europa League game as he put Chelsea ahead in the 55th minute. Ross Barkley (74) doubled the lead with a superb, curling free-kick after Rasmus Bengtsson was sent off for a second yellow card.

Hudson-Odoi rounded off a fine starting performance with the third goal in the 85th minute to seal Chelsea’s spot in Friday’s last-16 draw.

It will be a boost for Maurizio Sarri and his side ahead of their Carabao Cup final showdown with Manchester City on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.
