Antonio Conte: The form of this Chelsea player surprised me

CHELSEA boss Antonio Conte has hailed Blues winger Pedro

CHELSEA boss Antonio Conte has hailed Blues winger Pedro, but admitted he didn’t always expect the Spaniard to be part of his starting lineup.

The 29-year-old scored against Tottenham on Saturday as Chelsea beat a Spurs side who were previously unbeaten in the Premier League.

After barely featuring early in the season after Conte’s arrival at Stamford Bridge, the Spain international came into the team for Willian against Leicester when the Brazilian was on compassionate leave.

And Conte sung the praises of the former Barcelona man, saying he’s pleasantly surprised by his form.
