Ahead of Saturday’s game against Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea fans have urged Chelsea boss Frank Lampard to start Olivier Giroud.
Giroud has only started one Premier League game for Chelsea this season, the 1-1 draw against Leicester City at Stamford Bridge and wasn’t even included in the squad for the past three matches.
Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi are currently ahead of Giroud in pecking order at Chelsea.
Chelsea’s Twitter account tweeted a link to an article detailing five facts about the Giroud that fans may not know and Chelsea supporters replied to the tweet by urging Lampard to start Giroud against Newcastle.
“Should play him more,” said a Chelsea fan, according to Daily Express.
“One of the most under-rated players of this Era,” added another Chelsea supporter.
One Chelsea fan tweeted: “should start imo”, while another said: “The man will go down as one of the best ever.”
“He needs to play more,” commented a Chelsea supporter. “Underrated baller imo,” said one fan.
“Don’t ever mention a player if you have no intention of giving them a chance to play even if it’s just 2mins,” tweeted another Blues fan.
“Olivier Giroud always comes through in the end and scores goal,” added another supporter.
