Chelsea continued their march towards FA Cup glory with a 2-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux. The home side did put up plenty of resistance and it made life hard for the Blues, particularly in the first half. However, goals from Pedro and Diego Costa were enough to get the job done.
Antonio Conte was quick to dismiss talks of a double post the win but it still remains a real possibility. Whilst players like Diego Costa and Eden Hazard have gotten a lot of credit for Chelsea’s renaissance this season, Pedro has been an integral part of the side too with his goals and consistent work-rate.
His work-rate was on display in the build up to Chelsea’s opening goal, scored by the Spaniard himself. For the move, the winger had to make up a lot of ground in a very short span of time. Not only did he do that, he also capped off the move with a cool finish that gave Chelsea the lead.
