Chelsea only managed to get a 2-2 draw away at the Vitality Stadium against Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Blues went ahead courtesy of a stunning Marcos Alonso strike in the first-half, but fell short quickly after the restart as Cherries stunned Chelsea’s defence with two quick goals.

A late Marcos Alonso effort only helped Chelsea to a 2-2 draw, as the Blues fell short in yet another Premier League tie.

Pedro who started the game has blamed the draw on the early goal conceded after the restart and admitted that the team played well.

“In the first half we were playing very well and we created chances and the game was under control,” said Pedro after the game, “but in the second half with two chances for Bournemouth they scored two goals.

“Finally we scored with Marcos again but one point for us is a big opportunity lost to recover points on Leicester and for this reason it was a pity for us.”

“It is always difficult when you concede goals from set-pieces, and also to concede when you start the second half again,” added Pedro.

“This is frustrating because you are playing very well, Marcos and Reece with good energy and good spirit. Moving the ball well, we created chances but finally you have one point here and it is a difficult result for us because we had a good opportunity.”
