Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has been restricted to five appearances this season due to the emergence of Tammy Abraham.

Rather than sulk at his lack of opportunities at the moment, Giroud has revealed he is helping Abraham and pushing the 22 year old striker not to be in his comfort zone.

“It’s true that competition at Chelsea is tough,” Giroud told The Athletic.

“But it’s good for the team, for us to be there to step up. It helps to have players like myself that want to be back in the team and never give up.

“Tammy is doing very well now. He is very efficient up front. What can I say? I’m just waiting for my turn. I work hard in training with a good spirit. If the manager needs me, I will look to be efficient.

“Have I been helping Tammy? Yes. He is still a young player and is having a good moment. I am happy for him. He reminds me of myself when I was starting out in my career. He is precocious. He is doing very well at a young age. I am delighted for him. If I can help him to carry on, I will.

“But I will try to push him, again and again, not to be in the comfort zone. I will always try to score a lot. There is a good competition between us.”
