The 20-year-old forward played the full 90 minutes as Chelsea thumped Sevilla in the Champions League earlier this month but has missed the club’s last four matches with a thigh injury.
And while Frank Lampard remained coy when asked about Hudson-Odoi’s fitness at his Friday press conference, the young England forward was later pictured in full training with the rest of his team-mates.
‘Back and Ready!!’ Hudson-Odoi told his followers on social media this evening, along with a photo from Chelsea’s Cobham training base of him running with the ball.
There are hopes Lampard could have a fully fit squad at his disposal versus the Hammers, with summer arrival Hakim Ziyech also closing in on his return to first-team action.
The Moroccan has had a frustrating start to his Chelsea career since his £33million move from Ajax and has been absent for the side’s games with Krasnodar, Everton and Wolves due to a thigh injury.
‘It is their first day back with the group today training at a decent level,’ Lampard told the media when pressed on Hudson-Odoi and Ziyech.
‘I will have to see how they are the next two or three days to see if they make West Ham.’
The Blues will be desperate to return to winning ways at home to West Ham after losing back-to-back matches in the English top flight at Everton and Wolves.
Looking ahead to Monday’s Premier League encounter, Lampard praised the ‘great job’ David Moyes has done since taking over the reins from Manuel Pellegrini back in December 2019.
‘I think he’s doing a great job, they have good players, but the way they are playing and the consistency to the levels they’ve got this season have been really impressive,’ Lampard – who came through West Ham’s academy as a player – said.
‘I think he’s an experienced and a very, very good manager who has got his message across to them.
‘They have threats on the counter-attack and they are very good at set-pieces, so they are playing really well and are clearly a well-managed team.’
