Supporters of Chelsea took to Twitter following the cup defeat to Manchester United to express their disappointment in Pedro.

The 32-year-old Spaniard featured for the Blues for 20 minutes in Wednesday night’s defeat as a late substitute for Christian Pulisic.

With Marcus Rashford netting his speculative free-kick, which resulted from a foul by the Spaniard just minutes after the winger entered the field, many supporters were unhappy with Pedro and branded him a ‘curse’.

The 32-year-old has been in London for four years now, since his £24.3 million arrival from Barcelona in August 2015 (per Transfermarkt).

Still rated at £18 million (via Transfermarkt), Pedro has made eight appearances for the Blues across four competitions this term – with supporters still reeling over his latest.

What do we think?

Despite giving away the free-kick which led to the Red Devils’ winner on Wednesday night, Pedro still has some use to Frank Lampard’s side.

With an average rating of 6.95/10 across his three Premier League outings this term (via Whoscored), the Spaniard clearly has usefulness to the Blues that he can still fulfil when called upon.
