The Spaniard’s campaign has been a stop-start one, but his performances for the Blues last month sealed Shoot’s award.

With Antonio Conte announced as Chelsea’s new boss, Guus Hiddink used April to test some experimental line-ups, leading to defeats against Swansea City and Manchester City.

However, the month wasn’t without its successes for the reigning Premier League champions, as they stuck four past both Aston Villa and AFC Bournemouth – with Pedro netting in both games.

With Villa creeping closer and closer to relegation, Chelsea turned in a merciless display, including a strike for lesser-spotted January recruit Alexandre Pato.

It was the former Barcelona man who was the star, though, with a second half brace; ruthlessly capitalising on a leaky home backline at Villa Park.

Adding another at Bournemouth, the 28-year-old’s seventh of the season, he now looks to have regained the form with which he impressed in his early weeks in the English game.
