Chelsea midfielder Callum Hudson-Odoi has said they were determined to clinch the Champions League ticket.
“Our aim is to get top four and right now we’re in a good position,” the 20-year-old told the club’s website. “Every game that comes to us, we want to take it and hopefully try to get the three points in each game.
“This is a massive game for us so we’re all ready to step up and play our part. Fulham are a good team with good players but we’ve done really well lately so I think the manager and us players know what we need to do to win the game.”
Hudson-Odoi admits he holds a family rivalry against the Cottagers.
He explained,”I used to watch my brother’s games (for Fulham) all the time and it was nice to be around an academy and see stuff like that, especially as it was my older brother trying to aspire to his dreams and become a professional footballer.
“After I joined Chelsea, we played against Fulham loads of times but I remember one game when I was really young and my brother had just left them. He told me to try and score as many goals against them as possible!
“I think I scored 14 in that game and I was proud about that. It’s always good to play Fulham and it’s a derby for us as well so it’s a big game.”
