Eden Hazard has saluted Olivier Giroud for the strong impact he has had at Chelsea FC since his move to Arsenal this season.

Giroud has been settling in well to life at Stamford Bridge after he signed for the Blues from Arsenal in the January transfer window.

The French striker continued his strong form on Sunday afternoon when he netted the all-important winner in Chelsea FC’s 1-0 victory over Liverpool FC at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Hazard has been forming a strong partnership with Giroud on the pitch for the west London club – and the Belgian playmaker was quick to pay tribute to the striker after his winner on Sunday.

Speaking to Sky Sports after Sunday’s game, Hazard said: “It is easy to find him [Giroud] on the pitch.

“When you are a small player on the pitch you like to have a target man like him. We try to find the combinations.”

The 31-year-old striker has scored three goals and made one assist in the Premier League for Chelsea.

Chelsea FC are still harbouring hopes of breaking back into the top four before the season is out.

The Blues will move level on points with third placed Liverpool FC if they win their game in hand against Huddersfield on Wednesday night.

Chelsea FC will also look to try and end the season with a trophy when they take on Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley at the end of the month.
