Jamie Redknapp believes Eden Hazard has already struck up a positive partnership with Chelsea signing Olivier Giroud.

The France international moved to the defending Premier League champions in a £21m deal from Arsenal on transfer deadline day last month.

Giroud was brought in to bolster Chelsea’s attacking options ahead of the final half of the 2017-18 season.

The 31-year-old made an assist for Hazard in the first half of Chelsea’s 3-0 victory over West Brom at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.

The French centre-forward opened his Chelsea account in a 4-0 win against Championship side Hull City in the FA Cup fifth round.

Former Liverpool FC midfielder Redknapp has been impressed with the blossoming understanding between Giroud and Hazard.

“His [Hazard’s] levels are so high. He has a relationship with Giroud,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“You can see they have an understanding [already].”

Chelsea FC were forced to settle for a 1-1 stalemate with Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash on Tuesday night.

Argentina international Lionel Messi cancelled out Willian’s opener at Stamford Bridge mid-week.

Chelsea have won the Premier League title in two of the past three seasons under Jose Mourinho and then Antonio Conte.

The Blues finished seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the 2017-18 season.
