Chelsea winger Pedro has claimed he’s happy with the start of the season – and that the club are only improving.
After seeing their detractors come front and centre following their opening game, the Blues have now stabilised and look more like the side who stormed to the title last season in Antonio Conte’s debut season in charge of the club.
The Express report he was speaking after their win over Leicester, and said: “It’s one more win for us, a very important three points and we are continuing in the right way.
‘The team are playing very well.
“Every game in the Premier League is difficult, Leicester are very good on the counter attack and in transitions, with players like Vardy and Mahrez, so it was very important for us to win.
“They were two very good goals, Morata scored the first from a good Azpi cross, and N’Golo’s was a nice shot from outside the box. We are moving up the table which is very good for us.”
Pedro has of course seen his own start to the season slightly affected due to his facial injury, but joined Chelsea’s masked XI on his return.
The Blues may have seen their opening game go wrong, but since then, there’s no doubt they are looking better with each passing game and are certainly up there when it comes to the title favourites.
After a season out of the Champions League, Chelsea fans will be looking forward to seeing their side back in Europe’s Premier competition, and Antonio Conte will be targeting a place in the knockout stages as well.;
Chelsea may not have the easiest group, but it’s still one they will hope to win, and try and set themselves up with a favourable draw in the next round to boot.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata warned Real Madrid selling him would backfire
Alvaro Morata joined Chelsea this summer for a club-record fee of £60million after failing out of favour at Real Madrid.
The Spain international was not in Zinedine Zidane’s immediate plans and instead opted to reunite with Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.
Since moving to south-west London he has been an immediate success, scoring three goals and providing two assists in four appearances.
And according to Spanish outlet Don Balon, Morata warned Real president Florentino Perez he would rue selling him.
The report says the striker was not happy with the way in which he was sold and left the Bernabeu on bad terms.
Since leaving, Real have been struggling for goals and are sitting in sixth place in La Liga after three games.
Zidane is said to be desperate to add to his attacking ranks in January and has set his sights on Torino’s Andrea Belotti and RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner.
Also on the Real boss’ wishlist is Ajax youngster Kasper Dolberg and Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Morata has settled quickly at Chelsea and speaking after Saturday’s 2-1 win over Leicester, he admitted he was feeling good at Stamford Bridge.
“It was a very important win,” he said.
“Against teams like Leicester it’s always very difficult and we suffered in the last minutes having been 2-0 up, but that’s the Premier League.
“I’m feeling good but we are not in first place, which is the most important thing, so we must keep working.”
