Pedro has already scored nine goals this season, including a spectacular strike against Tottenham which earned him the Premier League’s Goal of the Month award for November.
The former Barcelona player was indeed built for the 3-4-3 formation; he has looked a different player since the switch to this formation, and he explained why he has been banging in the goals this season.
“I always think about how I can score a goal and help my team, so when I have a chance I try to score, I try to help my team – this is my job,” he told Chelsea magazine.
“I’m playing a lot more on the inside now than I was last season. I am getting on the ball and receiving passes more centrally, and getting in more goalscoring positions as well – obviously my team-mates are helping me to do this.”
