Pedro makes admission about Eden Hazard ahead of Chelsea v Southampton

By | December 15, 2017

Pedro Rodriguez has admitted that he is loving linking up with Eden Hazard in Chelsea’s attack this season.

The 30-year-old Spaniard scored one of Chelsea’s three goals to fire Antonio Conte’s men to a 3-1 win over Huddersfield Town in the Premier League on Tuesday night.

Pedro was deployed in a three-man attack alongside both Hazard and Willian and the trio linked up brilliantly as Conte’s men bounced back to winning ways in the top flight.

Hazard looks as if he is getting back towards his best form for the west London side as he bids to try and help the Blues defend their Premier League title.

The trio will be hoping to link up once again on Saturday when the Blues take on Southampton at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday.

And Pedro has spoken of his delight at linking up with the likes of Willian and Hazard in the Chelsea team this season.

Pedro told Chelsea’s website: “It’s very good because we all understand football very well.

“Eden is a fantastic player, and there are no worries if he plays as a striker or winger, which is very good for us.

“I had more chances to score [at Huddersfield] but the most important thing was the team-work and the win. I scored one goal and that’s good for me.”

Chelsea are currently in third place in the Premier League table as they prepare for their home clash against Southampton on Saturday.

The west London side will take on Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League after the draw was made on Monday.
