Eden Hazard vs Cardiff
Chelsea are top of the Premier League.
The Blues came from behind to beat Cardiff 4-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Maurizio Sarri’s men have five wins from five matches. Chelsea are above Liverpool in the league by virtue of a better goal difference.
The star for the show for Chelsea this weekend was Eden Hazard.
The Belgian levelled in the 37th minute after Sol Bamba had put Cardiff ahead from a 16th minute corner.
Hazard scored a second just before the break, while the Blues playmaker completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot in the second half.
Willian added a fourth in the final stages.
Olivier Giroud vs Alvaro Morata
One of the big issues which Sarri has faced in his early weeks at Chelsea is who should start up front.
Alvaro Morata was given his chance at the start of the season. But before the international break Olivier Giroud appeared to rise above Morata in the pecking order.
Against Cardiff, Giroud got the nod to lead the line.
Giroud set up Hazard for both of his first half goals, while the French striker played the 90 minutes.
Morata watched on from the bench
Hazard on Giroud vs Morata
Hazard spoke to the BBC after the Cardiff game.
The Belgian praised Giroud calling him the “best target man in the world”.
Almost as soon as Hazard made that statement, he started talking about Morata.
Hazard went on to claim that Chelsea have a good problem with both strikers at the club.
But was Hazard trying to cover up to how his Giroud comment could undercut Morata?
