Chelsea winger Pedro spoke ahead of the clash against Manchester City at Etihad Stadium.
The Spaniard, who has been recently named for the Goal of the Month prize, told the club’s official website: “It’s good to be nominated for the awards but it’s not just me, the team are all in good form and full of confidence,”
“I’m working well with my team-mates and just looking to help the side by doing my best and scoring goals”.
“It was a beautiful goal against Tottenham and it came at the right moment in the game for us, it was very important for us to score before half-time”.
“It was a very tough game and in a derby it’s always good for the team to get a win, especially after going 1-0 down. We want to continue to play with this mentality and take it game by game. We are top of the league right now so that’s very good for the confidence of the team.”
Then Pedro added: “It’s very good to react well when you need to. Against Tottenham we started to press higher up the pitch and scored the winning goal in the second half: the team are performing well in every game, we are all working for each other, which is really important”.
About the team: “I feel very comfortable in the team. With Antonio we are working very hard and planning for the matches during the week. Now we face a very difficult game against Man City, it’s an important challenge for the team. We want to stay top but of course it will be difficult.”
About Moses: “Victor is playing very well, he’s on fire and performing well in every game,’ he adds. ‘In the last few matches he’s been our best player and it’s a pleasure for me to play with him on the right-hand side. He’s very compact, really strong and he has a lot of skill, he’s a complete player.”
“He has very good ideas, he likes to press high and play from side to side, with people in between the lines looking to score goals. He’s a very good coach, they are a strong team and it will be a difficult game for us.”
Chelsea are set to face the Citizens at the Etihad Stadium today, and Pedro is confident that his side can earn another crucial win.
“I think he will probably tell them to press us high and make it difficult for us to play. He will want them to move the ball very quickly and look to create chances. It’s a tough game but we are doing very well, it’s a good moment for us and a good time to play this game”.
“It would be a big step for us if we can go four points clear of Man City. It would be very important for our confidence, It’s a big test for us and we’re looking forward to it.”
