Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has been bashed by the media and some fans over his failure to be consistent in his wins at the club. At a point, the fans called for his sack.

However, it has been identified that they can at least boast that he has been able to have Spanish international forward Pedro revived and return back to his best form given a look of what he was at his former team, Barcelona.

There is no doubt that Pedro has played a part in Chelsea’s impressive performance in the Europa League even as they head to Dynamo Kyiv for the second leg of the round of 16 tie. He was a threat in the first leg at the Stamford Bridge.

More to his impressive performance is that Pedro has been able to score 9 goals across all competitions for his team, an improvement from the 7 he scored last season while there are hopes he would do more before the season finally runs out.

Pedro who is the second highest scorer after Eden Hazard at Chelsea admitted that this is the best form he has been and has hailed the Italian manager for bringing in clear ideas he has been running with.

Jamie Carragher talked about Chelsea and Frank Lampard while he was on Sky Sports.

Brazilian international Willian came off the bench in the second half in place of new signing Christian Pulisic and the 30-year-old played poorly according to Jamie Carragher.

The ex-Liverpool man said that Frank Lampard could have subbed off Willian if he had an extra substitution at his disposal as the Brazilian international star played poorly during his time on the pitch.

Chelsea started their season with the 4-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United in what was the first league game of this season.
