Chelsea goalscorer Pedro hails Hazard; admits Sarri-ball 'very different'

Pedro was delighted to score in Chelsea's 3-0 win at Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Pedro put the seal on the win 10 minutes from time with a smart finish following brilliant work by Eden Hazard, and the Spaniard felt it was a good collective display.

"It was very important for us to start this way and to get three points," said Pedro to chelseafc.com. "The team were very good, I scored as well, so I'm very happy with the three points.

"Eden, when he's on the pitch, is very strong with the ball. His pass was very good for me, it was a good finish and I was happy with the goal."

The team are understandably still getting to grips with manager Maurizio Sarri's preferred style of play but, according to Pedro, it's a case of so far, so good.

"With Sarri his idea is to press high to recover the ball, move the ball quickly and create a lot of chances," said the forward. "I think it's very different but at the moment it's very good."
