The France international scored Chelsea’s first goal in the 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur and was given a standing ovation by Chelsea fans when he was replaced by Tammy Abraham.

“Olivier Giroud sunk Spurs and made Frank Lampard look a bit foolish,” according to The Sun.

“The France frontman has been snubbed by his Chelsea boss for most of the season.

“Even when other Blues strikers were injured or misfiring, Giroud still could not get a look in.

“Well, it appears Lampard got it very badly wrong.

“The gaffer will be relieved a man after seeing his side claim their first Premier League win in five matches.

“He should also feel a bit sheepish as the victory was thanks largely to the man he has overlooked for so long.

“Indeed had Chelsea managed to sign a striker in January then Giroud would not even still be at the club.”
