Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph asked Pedro which Premier League player has surprised him most.

And the Spaniard might raise a few eyebrows with his answer.

Pedro was apparently quick to single out Rose, who he has come up against on two occasions during his time as a Chelsea player.

They faced each other in a fiery 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge in May and once again this season, as Chelsea ran out 2-1 winners in last month’s top-flight clash.

“When I interviewed Pedro last week I asked him which player in the PL surprised him,” Law tweeted.

“He said Danny Rose and rates him as [his] toughest opponent.”

Pedro has enjoyed an impressive season so far, bagging four goals and assisting six in 16 league outings for Antonio Conte’s side.

Rose meanwhile, has made 13 top-flight appearances, scoring twice and turning provider on three occasions in the process.

The pair are likely to line up against each other when Tottenham host their London rivals next Wednesday.
