Ex-Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson has warned Liverpool to be wary of Chelsea’s teenage sensation Callum Hudson-Odoi when the two sides meet on Sunday.
The Reds’ inexperience against Hudson-Odoi could come in handy for the Blues who would want all three points to keep their top four hopes alive.
“Sarri has never won anything and could be sacked in the summer. He’ll want that trophy on his CV.
“But even if he doesn’t rest Hazard at Anfield, Hudson-Odoi is a bigger threat to Liverpool. They will know all about Hazard and if he plays they will make sure he doesn’t get the ball.
“But they haven’t faced Hudson-Odoi before. They won’t know him as well and they will try and play him one v one. Good luck with that.
“He’s at his most dangerous when defenders are isolated against him and he can run at them. That’s where the problem will be for Liverpool. Their front three don’t come back to help.” – Merson wrote in Daily Star
