Pedro admits Chelsea are "in trouble" if they are unable to bounce back quickly from their defeat to Manchester United.
Chelsea were knocked out of the FA Cup on Monday night after a 2-0 loss at Stamford Bridge, during which head coach Maurizio Sarri was booed by sections of the home support.
Sarri's side face Malmo in the second leg of their Europa League round-of-32 tie on Thursday, before Sunday's Carabao Cup final against Manchester City, live on Sky Sports Football, and Pedro admits the club is desperately in need of a positive result.
"There is an important game in the Europa League for us, and after the final against City," Pedro told Chelsea's official website.

"It was a very bad day for us, for all the team (against United). It's a difficult situation. In the first half we played very well, we created chances to score one goal, but they had two situations and scored two goals.
"The most important thing was to do a good job creating chances with the ball in the second half, but we couldn't do it and for this reason it was so difficult for us to come back."
