Pedro joined Chelsea last season, and all through the season, he looked far from the Pedro we knew at Barcelona.

However, he has been outstanding this season, and has been one of Chelsea’s best players this campaign.

The Spaniard, who’s in his second season at the club, admitted that he understands the Premier League better now, which is very different from the La Liga.

He told Chelsea magazine: “I understand the Premier League more now.

“It’s very different compared to Spain but now I’m in my second year here and I understand the football. It’s quicker, more intense and more competitive.

“Spain is different. It’s more tactical, it’s more about passing the ball and developing something. Here it’s quicker when you attack, and everything is different.

“You have to change mentally and it’s difficult to adapt at first, but I have changed, I have done that now.

“Then, when you go back to play for the national team, you really feel this difference, you can see an improvement from the physical side. Spanish football is more about technique, about the touch of the ball and the way you play, but here in England you can add pace and power to your game.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
