Chelsea recorded a convincing 4-0 home victory over Everton on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter singled out Pedro for immense praise for his contribution.
The Blues earned three points courtesy of goals from Mason Mount, Pedro, Willian and Olivier Giroud in the one-sided contest at Stamford Bridge.
Frank Lampard’s side showed a real ruthlessness in the fixture in front of goal and rising star Billy Gilmour stole the headlines once again with his individual display in midfield.
Chelsea remain fourth in the league table with a three-point cushion over fifth-placed Manchester United and are now only two points adrift of Leicester City in third.
A selection of Blues supporters on social media gave Pedro a special mention for his efforts at the weekend and believe he was a real standout in the team.
The 32-year-old scored one and assisted another against Everton, which was his first goal in the Premier League this campaign.
With Callum Hudson-Odoi and Christian Pulisic both injured recently, it’s opened the door for the Spanish veteran to get some rare minutes this campaign and he’s rolled back the years with his displays.
He’s on his best run of the season with four starts in his last five league games and showed great composure to slot past Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford after breaking beyond their defence.
Here are some Chelsea fans on Pedro:
Pedro played like a 19 year old making his debut today. Chased every ball and put himself in many positions to score.
