Pedro admits he struggled to adapt when he first joined Chelsea but feels he has now settled into life in the Premier League.

The Spain forward managed 29 Premier League appearances and seven goals in his debut campaign at Stamford Bridge last term after arriving from Barcelona.

The Blues star is on course to better his goals tally this season, with six in 22 outings so far having become a key member of manager Antonio Conte’s attack.

“I understand the Premier League more now. It’s very different compared to Spain but now I’m in my second year here and I understand the football,” the 29-year-old told Chelsea Magazine.

“Spain is different – it’s more tactical. You have to change mentally and it’s difficult to adapt at first, but I have changed, I have done that now.”

Chelsea have an eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League table but they turn their focus to the FA Cup this weekend as they head to Championship side Wolves in the fifth round.

The Premier League pacesetters are 1.36 to claim the win but Wolves should not be underestimated after dumping Liverpool out in the previous round.

The Molineux outfit are 8.00 to come out on top and a draw is 3.75. Pedro is 6.00 to open the scoring against Wolves on Saturday or 2.40 to find the back of the net at anytime.
