Chelsea look more dangerous with Olivier Giroud in the team because the Frenchman provides a focal point for the team.
This is according to Jamie Redknapp, who believes Giroud brings out the best in Eden Hazard.
“Eden Hazard will rightly get all the plaudits for his hat-trick against Cardiff, but playing alongside Olivier Giroud is bringing the best from him,” Redknapp told Daily Mail.
“Giroud is the focal point Chelsea have been searching for since Diego Costa returned to Atletico Madrid. When Hazard passes to him, it is as if he is playing the ball to himself off a wall.
“Giroud pins defenders, holds up the ball and can deftly play it back to the runner. With Giroud in the team, Chelsea look a far more dangerous prospect.”
