Thibaut Courtois: Why Pedro's arrival will help Eden Hazard


Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois says the arrival of Pedro from Barcelona will allow attacking midfielder Eden Hazard to move more freely on the pitch.

According to the 23-year-old, defenders will no longer focus exclusively on the Belgian as they will also be worried about the movement of the Spaniard.

"Pedro's arrival is good for Eden," the goalkeeper told the Evening Standard.

"Whenever Eden got the ball before, you knew that two or three players would go with him.

"Of course, we have other players with quality but opponents would cover Eden most of all.

"Now we have Pedro, the defenders can't just stay with Eden because they will know the other side is free for him to exploit."
