Tony Cascarino believes Pedro is producing the high quality of football he formerly was with Barcelona.

The Spanish winger has been in fine form for Chelsea with four goals and six assists in 16 Premier League outings this season, after scoring seven for the entire 2015/16 season.

Former Blues striker Cascarino feels the 29-year-old is back to his best under the guidance of Antonio Conte.

“When Pedro and Alexis Sanchez came to the Premier League from Barcelona, I thought of them as players who were equally good,” Cascarino told The Times.

“Last season Pedro’s form for Chelsea made that idea look ridiculous, but Antonio Conte seems to have a special skill for helping players to find the best in themselves.

“Pedro looks like the player we saw in Spain now, and you have to give Conte the credit for that.

“The Italian is one of those rare managers who do things that go against what pundits and fans are telling them to do and are proved right, as has been the case with him often putting Pedro in the team ahead of Willian, who was seen as the club’s best player last season.”
