Chelsea winger Pedro underlined the importance of passing through the next FA Cup round after beating 4-1 League One side Peterborough at Stamford Bridge yesterday.
The Spaniard told the club’s official website: “It was a good win for us in the third round of the FA Cup, especially at home in front of our supporters, there was very good teamwork and we’re very happy with the result”.
“Peterborough are a good team, every game in England is very tough, it doesn’t matter which division you’re in. They fought to win”.
Pedro played in a wing-back role, which is a new position for the former Barcelona star: “I had once chance in the first half which was unlucky, I shot very hard and it went up, but I’m happy to have scored two goals,”
“It’s a new position for me but it means the same in terms of work. I had to run a lot but it was good for me and a good performance”.
Chelsea bounced back from the last disappointing defeat against Tottenham in Premier League at White Hart Lane, as Pedro remarked: “Against Spurs it was a different game, we lost, but no problem, we just continue taking it game by game”.
“Next we face Leicester, a very difficult team, but we will prepare all week and go for the win”.
