Wow. Just wow.
To say that Pedro had an impressive debut for Chelsea would be a massive understatement. The former Barcelona winger dominated from the get-go, with 84% passing accuracy, three crosses, two shots, a goal and an assist against West Bromwich Albion in the FIRST HALF alone.
Between Chelsea supporters wetting themselves with delight and Manchester United coming off a frustrating draw against Newcastle United, Twitter was abuzz with reactions from both sets of fans.
Chelsea fans of course were the first to express their glee.
Pedro is playing as if he was always a Chelsea player!

Pedro was terrific. Exactly what we need on that side.

If it wasn’t for Pedro this game would have been out of reach for us #CFC

Pedro looks a great buy. Crazy we paid ‘only’ £22m for him & wasted £27m on Cuadrado. Pedro done more in 45 mins, than Cuadrado in 7 months. — Will Talbut (@WillTalbut) August 23, 2015
United fans were venting their anger at losing out to the Blues for the World Cup winner’s signature.
So Pedro’s first game for Chelsea, 1 goal 1 assist and man of the match, yeah LVG, we don’t need players like that @ManUtd

I seriously didn’t care about Pedro until he played in that game. #WhatALoss
