Hudson-Odoi, 18, also hit the crossbar and seized his big chance on the night he was asked to fill the boots of Eden Hazard.

The rookie was one of ten changes to the team which collapsed spectacularly in a 3-1 defeat to fierce rivals Tottenham on Saturday.

Veteran striker Olivier Giroud had already scored the two first half goals to make sure of victory and top spot in Group L with a game to spare.

Chelsea were helped enormously by the fact PAOK were reduced to ten men after only seven minutes when Yevhen Khacheridi tripped Giroud on a run into the box.
