The Spain international and former FC Barcelona’s forward Pedro, who is currently playing for the Premier League giant Chelsea has recently named Danny Rose as the toughest opponent he has faced in the Premier League.
The 29-year-old Spanish international Pedro, who has already scored 11 goals for the English giant since he joined Chelsea in 2015 and most importantly Pedro has rediscovered his best form after a lacklustre debut campaign in English football, becoming a key performer in Antonio Conte's 3-4-3 approach at Chelsea.
And according to Pedro, the 26-year-old English international Danny Rose, who is currently playing for the Tottenham Hotspur F.C., is the toughest opponent he has faced in the Premier League.

And recently speaking about his experiences in the Premier League in an in-depth interview with the Telegraph,
Pedro said, "It's not new for me, but it's difficult in this league. It's different here. At Barcelona, it's normal to win most of the games and sometimes it's too easy.”
"But the Premier League is very competitive and strong, and for this reason, 11 wins is a significant achievement. The record is 14, no? Only three wins more [before their win against Bournemouth], but that will be difficult. It’s a very good objective to get this record.”
"It's very different in Spain. Barca have many opportunities all the time to win matches, which in England is very difficult because the challenges are greater. You can see it week after week – the top teams lose to a team near the bottom because everybody is very good and the competition is very tough.”
