Pedro boosted Blues to win with an equalizer before the interval in London Derby win over Spurs. Chelsea were forced to come from behind after Christian Eriksen had fired the visitors into an early lead.
It was a seventh straight Premier League victory, Tottenham’s first league defeat of the campaign and a result which sent us to the top of the table.
‘It was a very difficult game for us but we’re really happy with the win and we want to continue in the right way,’ said Pedro, who drew us level with a brilliant strike on the stroke of half-time. ‘We must take it game by game.
‘I scored to help the team, which is good. Now we have great stability and high confidence, this was another important win.
‘It was a good goal and in the second half the team were really strong. The second goal from Victor came from a beautiful combination and the team are in the right way.’
The Spaniard went on to explain what Antonio Conte had said at half-time.
‘He told us to press high and concentrate between the lines. He told us to mark more aggressively and that was the most important thing. It was a good game for us and the supporters.’
