EPL 2016/17: Chelsea 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur – 5 Talking Points
Chelsea continued their winning run in the Premier League with a 2-1 win over Spurs last night. The London derby saw some brilliant end-to-end stuff at the beginning of the match, but once Chelsea got their rhythm right, they were unstoppable.
Here are the talking points from the London Derby.
#1 Pedro is finding his Barcelona form again
When Chelsea signed Pedro from the jaws of Manchester United last season, it turned a few heads. His debut against West Brom saw him score and assist, and everyone thought Chelsea had finally found the right winger they were missing.
Apart from that one performance, one just can't think of any other significant performance from the Spaniard last season. He could not stand out even though Chelsea's dismal season had no one step up for them.
But now, it looks like Conte has managed to give Pedro the much-needed confidence he was searching. He, along with Hazard has managed to give Diego Costa the freedom to play where ever he wants, and that's bringing out the best in all 3.
Pedro has had a hand in eight goals in his last six Premier League apps at Stamford Bridge. Three goals and five assists and he is giving the opponent defenders a nightmare.
