The former Barcelona man found the back of the net on his debut against West Brom and Mourinho adds that the Spaniard has already helped to improve his team.

He also laid on an assist as the Blues claimed their first win of the season after a turbulent start, and Mourinho believes the winger he signed for £21 million from under the nose of Manchester United has a bright future ahead.

"Even when they are top players like Pedro, they have always a little question mark, because with the great change in their lives, you never know how quick the adaptation is going to be,” the Portuguese manager said.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic might play in the Premier League in the future, but would only consider Chelsea, according to ex-Arsenal star Martin Keown.

“Now he might like to do it here. But unless he takes a drop in wages, it’s hard to see where he’ll go. I think the only place I could really see him would be Chelsea, especially if Diego Costa’s hamstring blows up.”
