Eden Hazard has declared that Olivier Giroud is “maybe” the best target man in world football after the pair helped Chelsea FC to move top of the Premier League table on Saturday.
The west London side continued their strong start to the new campaign under new boss Maurizio Sarri as they wrapped up a thumping 4-1 win over Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge.
Hazard netted a hat-trick for Sarri’s side and Willian added another goal late on to help Chelsea FC maintain their 100 per cent start to the new campaign and move up into top spot in the table.
The 31-year-old Giroud played the full 90 minutes for the Blues and set up two of Chelsea FC’s goals to help Sarri’s men continue their fine form.
And Hazard was full of praise for Giroud after the pair helped the Blues to claim all three points on Saturday.
Hazard told Chelsea FC’s website: “Olivier’s a target man, maybe the best in the world, I think so.
“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, he’s a different player than Olivier, but they both have great qualities, so I’m happy to have good strikers in the team.”
Chelsea FC will now switch their attentions towards Europa League affairs and their clash against PAOK on Thursday night.
The west London side are aiming to at least break back into the top four this season after they finished fifth and won the FA Cup last term under Antonio Conte.
