Pedro Rodriguez reflects on 'dream' Chelsea debut after a 3-2 victory over West Brom at The Hawthorns
Pedro Rodriguez reflected on a dream Chelsea debut after the winger scored on his debut in a 3-2 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
The Blues winger was thrown straight into the Chelsea starting line-up for their trip to The Hawthorns following his £21.1m move from Barcelona on Thursday.
Pedro broke the deadlock in the 20th minute after he combined with compatriot Cesc Fabregas before his strike was deflected past Baggies goalkeeper Boaz Myhill.
His Spanish team-mates Diego Costa and Cesar Azpilicueta also scored to secure Chelsea’s first three points of the season, despite James Morrison’s brace and John Terry’s sending off.
