Pedro came off the bench in extra-time to score the winner for Chelsea as the Blues dumped Leicester City out of the FA Cup to progress to the semi-final.

Pedro revealed after the game that he was happy to make a contribution but he admitted it was strange to score with his head.

“It’s very strange to score with the head,” Pedro laughed. “It’s good for my confidence in the team and to help us pass to the next round of the FA Cup.

“It was a very difficult game for us. It’s always difficult here. They have very good players like Vardy and Mahrez and they are very good on the counter-attack.”

“It was difficult for us to find the pass between the lines to Eden and Willian,” he added.

“They defended very well, pressed high and were strong in defence with guys like Maguire and Morgan. It is very difficult to win against the team, but the most important thing is we did that and passed to the next round.

“It’s good for our confidence and to help us fight in the next games. We are in a difficult situation in the league but in the FA Cup we are in the semi-final against Southampton. It’s an opportunity for us to go to the final and help us fight until the end for the top four.

“But now is the moment to enjoy this win because it’s difficult to win against Leicester.”
