Frank Lampard was pleased to see the “real Callum Hudson-Odoi” score his first Premier League goal and has challenged the winger to match the high standards he set in the home win over Burnley.
The 19-year-old showed a nice bit of opportunism, stealing in to the box to finish off Cesar Azpilicueta’s chipped ball, to net his side’s third and seal a comfortable win after a Jorginho penalty and Tammy Abraham header had given them a 2-0 half-time lead.
Hudson-Odoi has admitted struggling to recapture his impressive form from last season because of fears he will suffer a recurrence of the Achilles injury he suffered in April.
Jordan Ayew’s deflected equaliser earned Crystal Palace a point at home against Arsenal, who had goalscorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sent off by the video assistant referee (VAR).
Captain Aubameyang had put his side ahead with a well-worked team goal as Mikel Arteta’s side dominated the first half.
But Ayew brought Palace level after the break, his goal-bound effort leaving Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno with little chance after bouncing off David Luiz.
