Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud believes playing Eden Hazard as a false nine hasn’t really worked for Chelsea.

The 31-year-old striker insists he is relishing competing with Alvaro Morata for the centre-forward role.

“For me, the competition is with Morata,” Giroud said as quoted on The Mirror.

“We can be made to play with Eden up front but it is very rare and it really hasn’t borne fruit.

“There is always competition and it is necessary because I need that to continue to progress. I like challenges.”
