Olivier Giroud scored his 6th goal in his last 8 starts last night for Chelsea.
It proved to be a crucial one as it gave Chelsea their priceless win over Norwich and Frank Lampard was full of praise for the hardworking veteran.
“He is always going to give you a desire to get in there for the team,” Lampard told Sky Sports. “He had a few half chances in the central area. That is what you have to do when he is in the team – use his attributes, try and cross the ball.
“It’s a great cross from Christian [Pulisic] for Olivier’s goal. He is a big character for us, he has scored important goals, and that is really good.
“Just before the lockdown as well, he came in and got us a couple of big results and that’s probably credit he was due anyway.
“He has never given me a problem, always trained brilliantly, and when Tammy was really playing very well earlier in the season and regularly staying in the team, his professionalism was always good.
“I told him in January I wanted him to stay and he was fantastic with how he handled that, and he has continued to do that in the way he trains, and the way he plays is important for us.”
