Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud believes his battle with Alvaro Morata to lead the line for Chelsea will help fire the Blues to the title this season.
Giroud said: “It has always been a fair competition between us and we will both try to step up to help the team reach our target.
“I didn’t play at the beginning of the season because I came back late from the World Cup. I had to be patient, I had to reach a decent physical level.
“The coach said he wouldn’t make many changes until the end of August. He was clear about that. Alvaro did well at the start, he did all the pre-season. It was fair he started the season.
“I’m happy to have a team-mate like that, who pushes me to do better. It’s positive for both of us. I want to play as many games as I can and try to be as efficient as I can for the team.”
