Chelsea winger Pedro broke the deadlock in the Blues’ 3-0 win over Bournemouth yesterday with a left-footed shot in the first half.
The Spaniard told the club’s official website: “I’m very happy to have scored and help the team but the most important thing was the win”,
“It’s unbelievable because it’s very difficult to do that in the Premier League but the team are very compact on the pitch and that’s the right way”.
“It was very good, all the team played very well with great intensity and a good mentality. It was a very important win on Boxing Day for the supporters and we are very happy”.
Despite both Diego Costa and N’Golo Kante were absent in Boxing Day clash against the Cherries, Chelsea earned three points again: “It was a good performance, all the players are high on confidence and that’s very good for the team”.
“The attackers played very well and that’s the most important thing, the team were fighting for each other on the pitch and that’s the right way.”
Stoke City are now set to face Chelsea, but Pedro is not scared as the whole team needs to stay focused and think game by game.
“It’s difficult because the season is very long, – he added – There are a lot of games still to play but at the moment it’s very good for us to be top of the league,”
“Bournemouth are a good team and it was very difficult. Stoke are also a very good team but we must take it game by game”.
