Pedro reacts to Eden Hazard’s display in Chelsea FC’s 3-0 win at Huddersfield
Pedro Rodriguez hails Eden Hazard for his brilliant performance from the bench for Chelsea FC
Pedro Rodriguez praised Eden Hazard for his strong performance after the Belgian came off the bench to help inspire Chelsea FC to a 3-0 win at Huddersfield on Saturday.
Hazard came off the bench in the second half and set up Pedro for the Blues’ third goal after N’Golo Kante and Jorginho had put the west London side 2-0 up.
The Belgium international has only recently reported back to Chelsea FC after his involvement in the World Cup with his national team.
He will be working on building up his fitness levels in the next few weeks as he looks to hit top form for the west London side.
And Pedro was delighted by the impact Hazard had when he came off the bench in the second half of Chelsea FC’s Premier League opener.
Speaking to Chelsea FC’s website after the game, Pedro said: “It was very important for us to start this way and to get three points.
“The team were very good, I scored as well, so I’m very happy with the three points.
“Eden, when he’s on the pitch, is very strong with the ball. His pass was very good for me, it was a good finish and I was happy with the goal.”
Hazard’s future at Stamford Bridge has been a constant source of speculation this summer but it appears that the 27-year-old is set to stay at the west London club.
The attacker has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent months and his current contract at Stamford Bridge is due to expire in 2020.
