Chelsea wingers Pedro and Willian believes the 0-3 victory at John Smith’s stadium was the best way to start the new season ahead of next Premier League clash against London rivals Arsenal.
Pedro told Chelsea’s official TV juts after the game: “It has been really good, the team has been very good with the ball on the pitch, good also in finding the space. It was a very good result for us, good for the confidence.
It’s very important to be very passionate in moving the ball, to be strong with this two lines and to find the space. In the second half we played pretty well, maybe we had more space. It was important today, I think between the lines we worked very hard and very good”.
Eden Hazard provided a clever assist for Pedro in the 80th minute: “He’s the best player here, he started very good with a long run and a pretty move. He creates a lot of chances, the pass and the goal is a good way to start the season, the best way to get confidence and be prepared during the week”.
The Belgian star came off the bench in the second half to replace Willian, who told the club’s official website: “Pedro scored a beautiful goal! It was a good performance from the beginning to the end, we were in control of the game and possessio. It’s very important to move [quickly] and change positions. This is what we did today, in front we have a good quality”.
