He worked tirelessly defensively too, covering for the out of form Branislav Ivanovic on many occasions.
After a brilliant first game it is natural to wonder if he can keep it up. He also provided an assist on his home debut against Crystal Palace yesterday. So, what will he give Chelsea this season? Let's find out.
Pedro is everything Chelsea need in attack
Pedro is a player capable of playing on either side of the attack with similar gusto. He is a hard-working winger that is able to run both ways for the entire match.
Although not as technically gifted as many of his Spanish teammates he is still excellent in possession. He is strong with the ball at his feet in crowded areas and is more than capable of picking a pass.
Although he played in the ultra disciplined, tiki-taka Barcelona sides he was often considered Barca's most direct player. Because of this he is tactically very flexible and can fit into many styles of play almost seamlessly.
On top of his mental and tactical assets he also possess an eye for goal, something his record proves; 99 goals in 321 matches. He can act as a workhorse or a creator or even a finisher. His versatility and work ethic (even off the bench) will go a long way with the his Chelsea teammates, staff and fans.
He may not be a flashy dribbler, a slick passer or a goal machine but Pedro inherits attributes of each. For far too long he has been criminally underrated.
If given the chance Pedro can come in to his own and prove that he is everything Chelsea need.
