Eden Hazard praised his team-mate Olivier Giroud after last Saturday’s brilliant game, where the Frenchman served up his first two goals on a plate:
“Olivier’s a target man, maybe the best in the world; I think so,” said the Belgian.
“When he gets the ball he can hold the ball and we can go in deep with him, so for us it’s a pleasure to play with him.
“When Alvaro (Morata) was playing it’s completely different, but they both have great qualities, so I’m happy to have good strikers in the team.
“The game [against Cardiff] was very tough. We knew, especially after the (international) break, it’s always very hard to play a good game because you are all a bit tired, but at the end we got three points. That’s what is important.
“I think, okay, we can play better, we should play better, but we scored four goals and it’s a good game for us.”
In the last Premier League clash Cardiff took a shock lead through defender Sol Bamba‘s tidy finish, as the visitors pulled off a smart training-ground move.
Hazard praised Chelsea for refusing to panic however, with the Blues hitting back quickly to carry a 2-1 lead into half-time.
“After 20 minutes the score was 1-0 for Cardiff, but we just kept playing our football and then, when we have the chance, we need to score, and that’s what we did.
“The manager just wants Chelsea to keep the ball, and then when we can find a solution, we need to find good passes between the lines, like Jorginho, (Mateo) Kovacic and (Cesc) Fabregas can do.
“So, we have a lot of good players, and at the moment we are in confidence, so we shoot, we score. We need to keep this momentum.
“We have a lot of freedom on the pitch, so when we are in this condition we just need to take the ball and try something, and at the moment something happens, so that is very good.
“When I’m on the pitch I’m just trying to create chances, score goals. A hat-trick comes with confidence, so I will try to do more of this.”
