Giroud Reveals Players Chelsea Must Keep At All Cost


Seemingly, the Chelsea Board have the final say on the players, with Conte having to work with what he has got, thus becoming aggravated with lost targets last summer and in January.

Conte confirmed Giroud will be fit for Hull City's visit to Stamford Bridge on Friday in the FA Cup fifth round before three blockbuster clashes that will go a long way to deciding the outcome of Chelsea's season. "We are Chelsea, we are the champion", reckoned Hazard while demanding more emphatic performances like this one from his teammates. "I needed a new challenge and Chelsea was the ideal club for me", Giroud said in an interview.

"We are also in the Champions League, it's not easy to win the Champions League but we will go for everything".

In using the term "that next level", Wise is probably referring to the idea of Eden Hazard taking his form up to another elite stratosphere, one in which he would frequently draw comparisons to players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and others in that special, rarified air.

'(It) was the first time to play from the start with us.

Olivier Giroud believes he found the "perfect club" when he made a deadline day move from Arsenal to Chelsea.

Eden Hazard, who linked up well with Giroud for the first goal later revealed that he was happy with his arrival at Chelsea, the 27-year-old winger was sublime on the night as he ended the game with a brace and Chelsea's third. From that point on the Blues were looking more like the Chelsea they need to be.

"[Defeating West Brom] was a good response to the two losses in the last two weeks", Hazard said.

"We don't have too much time for integration but I feel very good and the boys have been very good to me". That's our target. We have 11 games to play between now and then and we have to give everything to achieve that.

"We are all together", he added. "[Against West Brom], we showed great character defensively and offensively which was good".
