Pedro has been a revelation this season under Antonio Conte whether asked to play as part of our attacking three or at wing-back and he has been speaking about how things have changed for him personally this year.

The 29-year-old signed from Barcelona for £21m two summers ago started life well at the club scoring on his debut away at West Brom. We all expected to see the player we had admired from afar at Barcelona, a player blessed with fantastic pace, technical skills and the ability to put the ball in the back of the net. We expected plenty more than what we were watching throughout the course of the season but for one reason or another it never happened.

He looked like he was struggling to adapt to life in England, the Premier League and looked like a man low on confidence. So much so, there were reports that he was looking to leave Chelsea this passed summer as he favoured a move back to Spain and La Liga.

Thankfully that never happened, he stayed at the club, Antonio Conte took charge and made the switch to our tried and trusted 3-4-3 formation and we are now witnessing Pedro at his absolute best which is something the player has admitted in a recent interview. He said:

“This is the best moment for me at this club and also the best moment for the whole team since I’ve been here.

I’m very happy here. It’s a good situation when you are top of the League and progressing in the FA Cup. We are on the right path.

Last year was a difficult one for me, for the club, for the team, but this year is different.

With this coach, all the team is focused on the fight for the title, with more confidence for every game and this is good. It’s a completely different season.

Every day I’m more comfortable with the team, with my team-mates, with the club and I have a good relationship with the supporters. All is good for me here and I’m very happy with the situation.

I understand the Premier League more now.

It’s very different compared to Spain, but now I’m in my second year here I understand the football. It’s quicker, more intense and more competitive.

For me it’s different now I have adapted. I have to run a lot, play harder and I’m very quick, which helps me in the games here in England.

There are more crosses into the box and everything happens very quickly, which is good for the players and the spectators.

Spain is different. It’s more tactical. It’s more about passing the ball and developing something.

Here it’s quicker when you attack and everything is different. You have to change mentally and it’s difficult to adapt at first, but I have changed, I have done that now.

It’s a good moment for me. I feel really good on the pitch. I’m scoring goals and I’m connecting well with my team-mates.” - Source: The Mirror.


The biggest gripe I had with Pedro last year was the fact that he wouldn't take anyone on, use his blistering pace to get passed people to the byline or to just attack the box. Instead, he would slow the game down and pass it square or backwards.

This season its totally different, he is working so hard without the ball to win it back, when we do and he has the ball at his feet he is off on his bike attacking teams and forcing them backwards, he is looking to exploit every single opportunity and it's great to see.

His link up play with the team is excellent and in particular with Eden Hazard, they both have developed an excellent understanding which has led to some excellent goals. Talking of goals, the header against Wolves was his 10th of the season so far (6 in the Premier League) and is good for his first real season feeling comfortable here now.

You only have to think about how good Willian was last season to win the Player of the Year and the fact that Willian is now rotated with Pedro because both are playing really, really well. Let's hope he continues to make telling contributions in games between now and the end of the season with some silverware at the end of it!

What do you think of Pedro's performances and overall contribution this season so far?
