This season, under the stewardship of Maurizio Sarri, the Chelsea career of Pedro is back on an upward curve.
Last season, under the managerial acumen of Antonio Conte, Pedro had a disappointing season and only managed to hit the net twice in 23 Premier League appearances.
This season, the Spaniard has already scored 3 in the first four games.
I’m probably not alone, but I was of the opinion that Pedro could be one of those heading for the exit in the summer transfer window.
But, instead, he expressed a desire to stay and fight for his place in the starting eleven.
It is, we reckon, a commendable attitude and one we admire.
But, returning to the upturn in form, it’s not the only thing we’ve noticed about Pedro this season.
The Spaniard is playing with that familiar smile having returned to his face.
Let’s hope that smile stays affixed to his face for the remainder of the season.
