Injury Not Considered Serious
Tuesday, May 10
"Pedro is out, not injured," said Blues manager Guus Hiddink, per Kinsella. "He's not in training because he had a broken nose at home; I don't know how at home."
The Spain international has experienced mixed success since moving to Chelsea in the summer of 2015, struggling with the transition of moving to the Premier League after spending more than a decade at Barcelona.
Like many other members of the Chelsea squad, Pedro reacted well to the appointment of Hiddink on an interim basis in December 2015. His 7.02 average rating on WhoScored.com is tied for the fourth-highest on the squad.
The Blues only have two matches remaining in the season, so even if Pedro is forced to miss both fixtures, it won't have a significant impact on the club.
Far more important for Pedro will be his status for the Spain national team ahead of the 2016 European Championships. As long as he can return quickly—likely with the aid of a protective mask—he should feature in coach Vicente del Bosque's side this summer.
