Pedro was the man who led Chelsea to their 3-1 win over Crystal Palace as the Spaniard scored the third goal which faded the visitors’ hopes to plan a turnaround. Alvaro Morata had put the Blues back in front after Townsend’s equalizer in the second half.
Pedro told Chelsea TV: “Yes it was a very good day for us and for all the team,
The team worked very hard and I’m very happy to score a goal and get the three points because it’s very important for us to stay near the top and to continue in this way”.
“The team are playing very well, moving the ball with one or two touches, creating chances and winning games. The important thing for us is getting the three points but we just need to take it step by step and game by game”.
The Chelsea winger also praised teammate and compatriot Morata, who’s growing in confidence after scoring 5 goals from 6 consecutive matches so far.
Pedro said: “After, when Alvaro scored again, we controlled the game and moved the ball faster, I then scored the third and that was good”.
“He’s in good condition and he had a very good performance. He has the mentality to score goals and help the team, that’s the best way for him”.
“We are happy because he’s a very good striker. He runs a lot and scores goals, now he’s in a very good moment so this is the way for him. Scoring goals is very important for him and the team”.
