Chelsea manager ,Maurizio Sarri, has commented on the performance of Pedro, while also addressing the increasing pressure to offer more game-time to Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Pedro walked away with the man of the match award, while Odoi was a late substitute to score Chelsea's final goal to beat Dyamo Kiev 3-0.

Via the club's Twitter account, here's what the Italian manager said about the result as well as the duo:

"Maurizio Sarri, speaking after the game, notes that we had chances to score even more than three, especially in the first half, but he says it is still a good result, it was important not to concede, but we must concentrate in the second leg.

"Sarri praises Pedro for his performance - both the player's attacking and his defensive work.

"Sarri says that he does not need convincing about Hudson-Odoi and points out that he is playing more than other players of his age at Premier League clubs. He adds that it is dangerous for there to be too much pressure on players so young."

The Blues next welcome Wolves to London on Sunday.
