It was feared that Pedro will be out for some time after being taken off at half-time in the London derby game against Arsenal on Sunday.

However, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been handed a boost with the news that Pedro will be available for selection for next week’s games.

Pedro suffered an ankle injury against Arsenal on Sunday, which forced the attacking midfielder to be substituted at half-time, but is now available for selection.

Conte said: “Pedro is fit for the game against Stoke on Saturday.

“Now it is very important to prepare. It is a very important game for us. This season Stoke have won at home against Arsenal and drawn against Manchester United. We must be ready.”
