Olivier Giroud issues Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois contract plea

Eden Hazard has talked up the early impact made by new teammate Olivier Giroud since making the switch from Arsenal to Chelsea last month.

The 31-year-old was replaced in the 60th minute after picking up an injury following West Brom's physical approach to handling the Chelsea FC signing.

Antonio Conte thanked the Chelsea fans for their loyal support as Eden Hazard's double eased the pressure on the Italian with a 3-0 win over rock bottom West Brom on Monday.

'It's simple to have a good understanding with him because he smells the game, he smells football.

Since Roman Abramovich took the reins at Stamford Bridge in 2003, one of the club's most discussed shortfalls is our inability to integrate players from our academy into our first-team squad. "He has a lot of defenders around him, so we are free to play around him, myself, Pedro and Willian", Hazard told Sky Sports.

Despite his great performances, Chelsea have been underperforming this season after their title-winning campaign in 2016-17. "In this moment, at this moment, in every moment, it's very important to have your players, all your players available". I know I will have to be efficient, assist sometimes, score sometimes.

He said: "It's been a while since I played regularly and that's why I needed to move".

"We're going to take the games step by step", added Giroud.

"He is one of the strongest players in the Premier League". It's a massive club and I am very proud to be here and to carry on my career. A poor run in the league in January coupled with elimination from the Carabao Cup semi-final has raised questions over his future at the club beyond this season.

"We want to qualify in the FA Cup and then we have three big games to come against Barcelona in the Champions League and then Manchester United and Manchester City away".
