Pedro, now 31 years old has scored three goals from eight Premier League appearances for Chelsea this season and the former Barcelona star is a valuable member of the squad.
Chelsea will need quality in depth if they are to achieve their hopes of lifting the Premier League title at the end of the season. The Blues currently sit in second place in the league only two points behind leaders Liverpool.
As you can see above Sarri is also hoping that star-man Eden Hazard will be back soon for the Blues, although the Stamford Bridge outfit managed just fine without his brilliance this afternoon.
Chelsea are looking like serious title contenders this season under Maurizio Sarri and the side look a far cry from the deject side that failed to qualify for the Champions League under Antonio Conte last season.
