With Chelsea struggling to break the deadlock against Everton, Pedro picked up the ball from Nemanja Matic in a central position, cut back onto his left foot and fired a shot beyond the outstretched legs of Phil Jagielka and into the top corner – and that goal which was scored on the last day of April turned out to be the best Premier League goal for the month of April.
The strike by Pedro beat off competition from Dele Alli (Spurs v Watford), Roberto Firmino (Stoke City v Liverpool), Xherdan Shaqiri (Stoke City v Hull City), Leroy Sane (Southampton v Man City), Sam Clucas (Hull City v Watford), Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool v Crystal Palace) and Diego Costa (Chelsea v Southampton).
Speaking about the goal, Pedro said: “It’s great for me to get this award again, it’s always important to help the team and score goals.
“It was an amazing goal, probably my best for Chelsea because of the fact it was a difficult game, and one which was very important for us, so I’m really happy.”
This is the second time Pedro is picking up the award, as he first won the award for his wonderful equaliser in our 2-1 home win over Tottenham Hotspur in November. Pedro has been in brilliant form for the Blues this season with 12 goals in all competitions from 39 games.
