Hudson-Odoi produced a man of the match display as the England Under-21s put five goals past Albania, in qualification for the European Under-21 championships.
Following the game, he told Chelsea’s official website that he was pleased with the club’s start to the season.
‘We could win the title as well’
He believed it was essential for the club to continue their momentum and even went as far as suggesting they could win the Premier League.
“We want to keep building, keep getting goals, keep getting assists and keep working hard as a team and hopefully, you never know, we could win the title as well.”
However, despite the winger’s confident and bold remarks, his boss was keen to play down the assertions.
‘There is a long way to go’
Lampard hailed the forward’s ambitious nature and winning-mentality, however, he gave an honest assessment regarding their chances.
The Blues boss believed the side need to be cautious before making any premature title claims. He insisted there were various areas that required improvement.
As quoted by Football London, Lampard said: “He’s excited! I like confidence, I like the players feeling like that [possible title winners].
“For us, my job is to dampen what he said there and say there is a long way to go.
“There are so many things we have to improve on before we can get into that conversation.”
The goal against Albania was Hudson-Odoi’s third for club and country this season.
In many ways it was a carbon-copy to the forward’s first league goal of the season. The league effort saw him cut inside from the left and fire home.
The strike helped the Blues to a point against West Brom, against whom they trailed 3-0 at one stage.
With Christian Pulisic absent for Saturday’s match, Hudson-Odoi will surely fancy his chances of playing against Newcastle.
