Michael Owen praised Pedro Rodriguez for a “lovely” finish after he set Chelsea on their way towards victory over Qarabag in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The Spanish forward scored the opening goal at Stamford Bridge when he curled home a brilliant strike after being left in lots of space on the edge of the box.

Davide Zappacosta then made it 2-0 before Cesar Azpilicueta fired home a third in the second half.

A goal from Tiemoue Bakayoko and two from Michy Batshuayi completed the rout as Chelsea got their Champions League campaign off to a flying start at Stamford Bridge.

And former Liverpool striker Owen was very impressed by Pedro’s composure as the Spaniard set the Blues on their way towards victory in west London.

Speaking on BT Sport on Tuesday night, Owen said: “It was a lovely finish but you can definitely question the defending.

“He had loads of time and space. The finish was a lot harder than it looks in terms of trying to keep it down.”

Chelsea return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon when they take on Arsenal in their crunch clash at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are currently third in the Premier League table after having won three of their four opening games.
