Chelsea were held to a goalless draw by West Ham on Sunday and Maurizio Sarri believes the Blues missed the movement of Pedro up front.
Liverpool are currently the only English team with a 100 percent record after Manchester City and Chelsea dropped 2 points.
Chelsea were without Pedro after the Spaniard suffered a shoulder injury in Thursday’s victory over PAOK Salonika and Sarri hopes he makes a speedy recovery.
‘Pedro for us is very important because he is the best player we have with movement without the ball.
‘We are trying to have him back for the end of the week, but I don’t know at the moment.’
Meanwhile, Pedro has named Barcelona ace, Lionel Messi, Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo and PSG’s Neymar as the only players better than his Chelsea teammate, Eden Hazard.
Pedro said Hazard was closing in on Lionel Messi and others and deserves to be regarded as one of the best players in the world.
Hazard has started the new season in spellbinding form, scoring a hat-trick in last weekend’s 4-1 demolition of Cardiff.
Pedro, who has already scored three goals in five games this term, told Chelsea website, “It is obvious that Eden Hazard is in the three, four players that are the best in the world like Leo, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Eden.
“Because Eden every year, you show your football and your numbers – score goals, assists, play a lot of minutes, play very good.
“I don’t know, maybe in a few years, Eden can win the golden ball or another thing because he is a very good player.
“He is a big star. It is very good for the us that Eden is in good form with good confidence, doesn’t lose the ball, is dribbling very good, scores goals.
“It is a very good help for the team and when this guy plays like this, he is very difficult to stop.
“He is playing with good confidence and very high potential to score goals, help the team, no pressure but as well in a really good form physically.”
