Of course, Guardiola was asked about the former Barcelona man in his pre-game press conference, with the two of them having worked together at Camp Nou for many years. 

The response from the City coach towards the Canary Islander could not have been more glowing: “I hope he doesn’t stand out too much against us. 

“Pedro’s made me a better manager. He showed us the importance of pressing high. He’s a player that moves well between the lines and in the area he’s a killer.”

After a tough start at Stamford Bridge, Spain international Pedro has come good under Antonio Conte this season. 

Guardiola added: “I am really happy that Pedro’s found some stability and is an important player for Chelsea, he deserves it.”
