Chelsea booked their place in the next round of the Europa League after securing a 5-1 aggregate win over Swedish giants
Chelsea Key Talking Point
Fortunately, Chelsea aren't in a rush to get their mojo back any time soon, it's not like they're playing the Premier League champions in a cup final this weekend...oh wait.
Callum Hudson Odoi is not a player for the future. He's a player for the present #Chelseafc— Aditya Kaustubhan (@AKaustubhan) February 21, 2019
Callum Hudson-Odoi completed six take-ons in the opening 30 minutes against Malmo, as many as all other 21 players on the pitch combined.— Squawka Football (@Squawka) February 21, 2019

Last 10 minutes between Hudson Odoi and Kante has been better than the last 15 games between the entire squad.— P (@cfcpetey) February 21, 2019
Hudson-Odoi is gravy — Jay✨ (@Jay_pricee98) February 21, 2019
N’Golo Kante and Hudson-Odoi have some incredible wavelength between them, need to play together on that right hand side, much, much, much, more. #cfc— Danny Busciglio (@DBusciglio) February 21, 2019
Striker Olivier Giroud had very little support from the midfielders at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea's wingers had to make up for it, something which they largely did.
Hudson-Odoi had veteran defender
Dahlin (6), Vindheim (6), Nielsen (6), Bengtsson (3), Safari (4), Rieks (7);
Chelsea only have a few days rest before they go toe-to-toe with Manchester City to fight for the first piece of silverware this season, the Carabao Cup.
But they'll first be keeping an eye on the Europa League draw on Friday, having booked their place in the Last 16 alongside the likes of Arsenal, Valencia and Sarri's former side S.S.C. Napoli.
