    CHELSEA fans are calling on the club to hand Eden Hazard's No10 shirt to new boy Christian Pulisic after his stunning form for the USA team.

    One Chelsea fan wrote: “What's wrong with Pulisic Getting number 10?!”

    Another added: “Just waiting for his squad number to be released…”

    ROSS BARKLEY claims Callum Hudson-Odoi will surprise Chelsea fans with his free-kick taking ability next season.

    He told the Chelsea website: “People know about Marcos, they know about David and they know about Willian – when we are taking set-pieces it is mainly me and them.

    “Emmy (Emerson) has got a decent free-kick. Someone the fans might not know about is Callum Hudson-Odoi, he has been working on free-kicks a lot and concentrating on technique with Gianfranco Zola.

    “I can see that when he is back and has had more training, he will be able to showcase his free-kick ability.”
