Watch: Eden Hazard delivers ultimate praise for Olivier Giroud


Eden Hazard paid the ultimate compliment to Olivier Giroud after the duo combined to devastating effect in Chelsea‘s 4-1 victory over Cardiff City.

Cardiff threatened an upset at Stamford Bridge when Sol Bamba put the visitors ahead in the 16th minute.

When asked by BBC Sport how much easier Giroud makes his job, Hazard suggested that the former Arsenal striker is the best target man in world football.
