Frank Lampard will be without Callum Hudson-Odoi for Sunday’s trip to Aston Villa

Frank Lampard has told Callum Hudson-Odoi to heed the lessons of his brush with the police during lockdown.

Hudson-Odoi will not face any further action on an allegation of rape, having been arrested on May 17 and released on bail.

Chelsea boss Lampard admitted he admonished the 19-year-old winger for his breach of England’s lockdown, then challenged him to learn from his mistakes.

Hudson-Odoi will miss Chelsea’s return to Premier League action at Aston Villa on Sunday due to an ankle complaint, and Lampard called on the teen star to strive to fulfil his rich potential.

“So that was positive for us, the situation for Callum.

“I’ve hopefully shown in my short time in management that I’m very sympathetic towards the idea that we’re not angels or saints, and that we can make mistakes, particularly at a young age.
