Lampard Shower Praises On Just ONE Player After Chelsea Win Over Sevilla



Olivier Giroud was Chelsea’s match-winner for the second time in as many Champions League games as he scored all four goals in a 4-0 victory over Sevilla that clinched first place in Group E for the Blues.

After the game, Frank Lampard shower praises on Giroud for wonderful performance against the Spanish La Liga side.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard speaking to BT Sport: “Four goals at this level and the quality of the goals, individual aspects from Olivier [Giroud] and team aspects in the first half, from back to front the team were great, amazing solo performance from Olivier. Delighted with him, delighted with the team. This is a difficult place to come. There were moments in the first half where it was tough and we dealt with it.

“Olivier is reliable, full stop. Not just for us but his international goals for France, he’s up there with great French individuals, he’s got great statistics. I’m not too bothered about that in a way but I am bothered about what he gives us on the pitch. There couldn’t be a team-mate there that the players are happier for because of the way Olivier is around the training pitch and in the games.”

On whether he will play against Leeds: “We’ll have to see – it’s a tight turnaround but it’s four goals in a game. It’s not just his performance but when you play him and utilise his strengths and his speed, there’s a real balance in the rest of the team.”

On fans returning at the weekend: “Delighted to have the fans back with us, there’s still a long way to go, it’s small numbers in relation to the Premier League stadiums, small baby steps but it’s something. The fans have supported us from afar and we appreciate that but we’ll be delighted to have them back.”
