Chelsea winger's ferocious hit at Everton tops eight-goal shortlist for the best goal of the month of April.

The winger’s effort from outside the box at Goodison Park could yet prove pivotal in Chelsea’s bid for a fifth Premier League title, which they will claim on Friday evening if they win at West Bromwich Albion.

With the match heading for a draw, Pedro smashed past Maarten Stekelenburg to break the deadlock in the 66th minute.

The goal set Antonio Conte’s side on their way to a 3-0 win that established a seven-point lead over second-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

"It's amazing to win this award, but it's for the team, for everybody," says the 29-year-old, who claims the prize for the second time this season having also won in November for his strike against Tottenham Hotspur. 

Pedro’s goal was chosen from a shortlist of eight contenders from the combined votes of a panel of experts and the public, who picked their favourite via the Carling Tap and website.
