Chelsea fans are going to love Pedro

It's been a season of many negatives for Chelsea thus far, but the reigning Premier League champions can at least look on the positive side as they recorded their first win of the season on Sunday against West Bromwich Albion.

Amongst other plus points that came from the win is the new signing of Spanish winger Pedro Rodriguez, who made a flying start to his Chelsea career.

The 28-year-old, a World Cup winner in 2010, was expected to join Manchester United this summer but ended up at Stamford Bridge after United withdrew their interest. United fans will probably still be wondering why that was the case as Pedro put together a performance that showed just why he was chased by some of Europe's elite clubs.

Great start for the forward

The winger opened the scoring at the Hawthorns with an effort that deflected off an opposing Albion defender, finding the back of the net to score his first goal and make it 1-0 to his new club.

He then assisted Diego Costa, who made it 2-0 to the Blues, though statisticians may rule out an assist for Pedro as the ball that found Costa from him was initially a shot at goal.

Man of the match

However, The Spaniard continued to shine on his debut, using his pace and vision to create chances for his side and the travelling fans were clearly impressed as they chanted Pedro's name and on one occasion even had a go at their rivals, singing "Are you watching Manchester?"

Pedro's day would eventually come to an end as he was substituted in the 84th minute of the game to be replaced by John Obi Mikel, though it didn't end there as later on his performance on the pitch was honoured with the man of the match award.

The signing of Pedro has certainly given Mourinho's men a lift and they'll be looking to use that to mount up another title challenge and hopefully reclaim what's theirs, will Pedro be the one to lead them?
