£21m Pedro took less than 20 minutes to get on the scoresheet for Chelsea in his debut against West Brom at the Hawthorns today, and soon after made the assist for Diego Costa.

Collecting Eden Hazard's pass, the winger, who moved from Barcelona this week, he took a touch before he low effort nicked in off Jonas Olsson.

Then under 10 minutes later, after his direct run into the box he fired the ball across the goal for Diego Costa to slide in.

After signing last week, Pedro said: "I am very happy to be here. I am very excited to start my adventure at Chelsea and I am here to keep winning titles," Pedro said.

 

"Thanks to the club and the supporters for giving me the opportunity to put the blue shirt on."
