Pedro: Set to miss Arsenal game

Pedro says he is “happier” and more confident after leaving Barcelona to join Chelsea in the summer.

The Spain forward moved to Stamford Bridge from his boyhood club after growing tired of life on the periphery of Luis Enrique’s first XI, but the Blues have since endured their worst start to a season in 37 years.

Despite his new side’s struggles, Pedro remains satisfied with his choice to swap Barcelona for west London.

He told the Spain national team’s website: “When someone gets to play, they gain rhythm, confidence, you’re happier, you try out more things.

“Leaving Barca was tough for me but I’m happy with the change.”

The 28-year-old praised the influence of his compatriots in the Chelsea dressing room, saying the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa and Cesar Azpilicueta have made the settling in process simple.

“They’ve been a great support to me,” he added. “The adaptation has been quicker given I already knew them from here and they’ve treated me very well in the dressing room, showing me how the club works.”
