Alvaro Morata might not appreciate Eden Hazard’s comment after Cardiff

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. Yet Chelsea are above Liverpool in the league by virtue of a better goal difference.

The star for the show for Chelsea 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 praise Giroud calling him the “best target man in the world”.

Almost as soon as Hazard made that statement, he started talking about Morata.

Was Hazard sensitive to how his Giroud praise could undercut Morata?
