Video: Bournemouth 0-1 Chelsea – Pedro flick makes it look easy

Posted by

Goals have been relatively hard to come by for Chelsea winger Pedro. Prior to the month of April the former Barcelona superstar had just four goals and two assists in 22 matches – hardly the kind of production the Blues were expecting out of a player they paid nearly £20 million for this past summer. Nonetheless, he still demonstrated his ability to make the hard shots look easy as he scored an opening goal against AFC Bournemouth on Saturday.

After the team spent the first few minutes defending a futile attack from the Cherries, Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas led a quick and efficient attack deep into Bournemouth territory. As he did so many times in Spain, Pedro finished the pass to perfection and flicked the ball over Artur Boruc for a goal at the 5′ mark.

Surprisingly, the goal for Pedro was his seventh on just 14 total shots this season. Perhaps he has a future at Stamford Bridge under Antonio Conte after all.
