New Chelsea signing Pedro has admitted that it was 'strange' playing for the west London outfit after leaving Barcelona behind this summer.
As reported by the Mirror, the Spanish international, who had previously spent his entire career at the Nou Camp, claims it was a different feeling of not being able to find the likes of Lionel Messi and Co. on the pitch when playing for Jose Mourinho's side.
Pedro, of course, enjoyed a wonderful debut for the Blues, as he scored in the club's 3-2 victory at the Hawthorns against West Brom last month, however he was brought back down to earth as the Blues suffered a surprise defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace before the international break.

Perhaps, then, it will take some time for Pedro to feel completely at home in his new surroundings. Speaking to El Pais, the Chelsea ace stated: "Imagine on the pitch, after so much time and not being able to find Messi, Alba, Andres or Busquets - it was strange."
It certainly doesn't get any easier for Pedro and Co. on the club scene, with the Blues set to take on Everton at Goodison Park this weekend. Mourinho's side will no doubt be hoping to make amends against the Toffees, but will certainly have to be at their best to take all three points away from Merseyside.
Change of dynamics
One thing's for sure, with Pedro now plying his trade at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea most definitely have one of the most exciting forward lines in world football.
Ultimately, with the trio of Pedro, Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas roaming around behind striker Diego Costa, the Blues have a little bit of everything when on the attack.
Of course, it may well take some time for the experienced Spaniard to produce the goods on a consistent basis, but he's already starting to show signs that he's ready to adapt with ease.
