Find out what our extra-time hero against Leicester City had to say about some of his Blues team-mates when he took part in a fun-filled interview with Soccer AM.
The Spaniard came off the bench at the King Power Stadium on Sunday to score the goal which booked us an FA Cup semi-final against Southampton.
Earlier this season he took part in a team-mates 2.0 interview with Chelsea supporter, Tubes, at our Cobham training ground and while the category 'most likely to score an extra-time winner' didn't pop up, Pedro was more than happy to share a few secrets about his fellow Blues.
When it comes to the man who is the Players' Player within the squad, the 30-year-old picked out someone he plays alongside in the attacking third of the pitch.
'For me it is probably Eden Hazard. He's a star, the best player in this team, and he's very good at dribbling, scoring goals, assists and passes. He is a very good player.'
The Belgian, however, had to play second fiddle in the category of Nutmeg King to Willian. Seeing as Eden also picked the Brazilian in this category when he did his own team-mates interview, he probably won't have too many complaints!
It comes as little surprise that the two players Pedro picked for Hard as Nails both play in defence, as both Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta get the nod for this one.
'They are the two strong guys in the defence,' he said. 'Gary is a very strong guy and has very good arms! They are good to have defending for us.'
The Speed Demon category proved to be a bit trickier. Pedro himself would be a strong contender for this one, but it seems it is one of his newest team-mates who would hit the finish line first in a 100m sprint.
'It's difficult because we have very fast players,' he said. 'There's Musonda, Willian, Zappacosta. Kante is always running a lot! If they had a 100m race, probably Zappacosta would win.'
There's always good competition when it comes to the Hot Stepper, with plenty of players fancying themselves on the dancefloor, but the best moves clearly belong to Toni Rudiger in the eyes of Pedro.
'He has good movement and good rhythm – he's the man for dancing,' added the forward. 'David Luiz is also very good.'
Pedro saved his best until last, though, as he picked out a good friend of his for the category of Fashion Fail.
'I don't know,' he pleaded, but with a glint of mischief in his eye. 'It's probably Cesc! Here at the training ground, all the players have their sportswear, so I don't know, but it's probably Cesc. Sorry mate!'
