Gary Cahill reacts to Pedro’s display in Chelsea’s win over Tottenham

Gary Cahill heaps praise on Pedro after Chelsea's 2-1 win over Tottenham in the Premier League

Gary Cahill lavished praise on Pedro after the Spaniard helped to fire Chelsea to victory over Tottenham in the Premier League on Saturday night.

The Blues fell behind to their bitter London rivals in the first half when Christian Eriksen gave Spurs the lead.

However, Chelsea drew level on the stroke of half-time when Pedro curled in a superb equaliser to get Antonio Conte’s men back into the game.

And Victor Moses ended up scoring the winner soon after half-time when he fired home Diego Costa’s low cross.

Pedro has been in fine form for Chelsea this season under new boss Conte and Cahill was full of praise for the Spaniard after the game.

Speaking to Chelsea’s website, Cahill said: “It was an unbelievable finish, a touch of class from Pedro.

“He whipped it into the top corner and that is the sort of player we have got, ones to change games like that. That was vital going in at half-time.”
