Pedro Rodriguez has been in amazing form this season, and he has scored 4 goals and assisted 4 in his last 10 league games for the club, prompting Tony Cascarino to compare the former Barcelona star to yet another former Barca player, Alexis Sanchez.

“When Pedro and Alexis Sanchez came to the Premier League from Barcelona, I thought of them as players who were equally good,” Cascarino told The Times.

“Last season Pedro’s form for Chelsea made that idea look ridiculous, but Antonio Conte seems to have a special skill for helping players to find the best in themselves.

“Pedro looks like the player we saw in Spain now, and you have to give Conte the credit for that.

“The Italian is one of those rare managers who do things that go against what pundits and fans are telling them to do and are proved right, as has been the case with him often putting Pedro in the team ahead of Willian, who was seen as the club’s best player last season.”

Sanchez has been superb playing a more central role for Arsenal this season, and already has 14 goals and nine assists for Arsene Wenger’s side. But do you think Pedro is just as good as Sanchez?
