Chelsea are under pressure this weekend as they look to bounce back from a run of defeats.
Antonio Conte’s side have slipped slightly in the race for top four in the Premier League following losses to Manchester United and Manchester City.
The Blues find themselves fifth in the table, five points adrift of the Champions League spots with nine games left to play.
In the late kickoff on Saturday, the West London outfit will take on Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge in the hope of getting back on track.
During the build-up to the game, Chelsea posted a video on Twitter of the players on the training field.
One clip showed Pedro chipping the ball over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net.

In response, supporters, who are hoping that Eden Hazard is not made to play up front, demanded that Pedro perform the skill during a match.
Some fans took a swipe at the Spaniard’s recent form, which has included one goal in his last eight outings for Chelsea.
But he would bottle this in actual game. Smh

I wish he could shoot like that in actual games and not just give the ball away

Would appreciate if he does that in big games, no no at least if he passes good.
