‘I’m really happy to win the award,’ said Hudson-Odoi.
‘The season has gone really well. Every time I have played I have felt more confident and enjoyed it. As soon as I got the opportunity to be involved I felt I had to stay in it and keep going and going. I have just got to keep working hard and hopefully more opportunities will come.’
The winger has netted five goals and by the point of his injury had started four consecutive Premier League matches.
