Eden Hazard is the Chelsea star famous for beating players with ease. Hazard has the ability to go past three, four players without a fuss. Little wonder he always gets kicked by opposition defenders.

However, in the FA Cup semifinal clash against Southampton on Sunday, it was Olivier Giroud who scored an Eden Hazard kinda goal as he showed quick feet and skill to get past many Southampton bodies and already had their goalkeeper on the ground before slotting the ball into the net.

Hazard has jokingly revealed that he didn’t teach the Frenchman how to dribble, and he hopes Giroud who hasn’t lost in his last ten games at Wembley, brings his lucky charm to the FA Cup final clash against Manchester United on the 19th of May.

Hazard said: “I didn’t teach him how to dribble, no. He has qualities. We all know that. Last year we sadly lost the final. But now we have Olivier Giroud. He often wins FA Cup finals.”

Giroud on the other hand revealed that skiing helped him to produce the skill.

He said: “My second passion is skiing! I saw a lot of people in front of me and I just tried to dribble a little bit and I had a bit of luck but that’s what I wanted to do.

“I told them I really want them to enjoy the FA Cup as I know how special it is to win it.

“It’s like my garden and I love to play here.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
