Chelsea boss Conte praises Pedro at wing-back

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte praised Pedro for his performance in defeat to Crystal Palace.

Pedro was forced to play as a wing-back against Palace due to the absence of Victor Moses.

Victor Moses is an important player because he's having a great season but Pedro played very well in that wing-back position," said Conte.

“As wingers, they are very offensive and that showed we wanted to play our football.

“Pedro had a very good game."
