Chelsea vs Liverpool: What Hazard said about Giroud’s performance
Chelsea ace, Eden Hazard has lauded teammate, Olivier Giroud, after the French international scored the winning goal for his side against Liverpool in the Premier League.
Giroud headed in the only goal of the game, as Antonio Conte’s men defeated the Reds 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
The win takes the Blues to 69 points, two behind Tottenham Hotspur who lost 1-0 to West Brom on Saturday, with two fixtures left.
Hazard, however, feels Giroud is a target man that is easy to locate on the pitch.
“[Giroud] is easy to find on the pitch, when you are a small player like me, it’s nice to have a target man like him,” Hazard told reporters after the match.
“He missed a couple but in the end he scored and we won the game so it’s okay.”
