The 18-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to German champions in recent weeks after impressing in his few matches under Maurizio Sarri.
According to reports, this could have been Hudson-Odoi’s last game in a Chelsea shirt before his expected Bundesliga move.
Meanwhile, the winger was asked about his immediate future after the match but has been neutral on whether he had already spoken to the German giants over his transfer.
“I don’t know, I can’t say,” he told the BBC.
“I’ll keep working hard and you never know what will happen. I thought we did very well. It was a great team performance.”
“We did very well in training and worked really hard. That’s one of my highlights. It was nice to top it off with a goal.”
Meanwhile, reports suggested that Hudson-Odoi handed in a transfer request over the weekend, although, Chelsea are said to have rejected yet another bid for the youngster.

And former Chelsea star Ruud Gullit told the BBC at half-time: “He’s a good player, I think he wants to play, but he has a lot of competition. A lot of players are in front of him.”
“I can understand he wants to play, I think Chelsea are in doubt because they see his potential but have better options at the moment. If it was my son, I would say go and play.”
“You can only get better by playing, not sitting on the bench or playing with the U23’s. You don’t get better from that.”
