Olivier Giroud had just 20 minutes to prove himself against Manchester United on Monday night, and the Frenchman showed why he is highly valued by France boss Didier Deschamps.
Giroud’s impact against United was instant, and in the absence of the injured Tammy Abraham, fans are calling for his return to the starting line-up this weekend.
Giroud is well aware of the significance of Saturday lunchtime’s kick-off with Jose Mourinho’s side, as Spurs sit just one point behind Chelsea in the league table and he has called for improvements in the small details.
“We just need to improve on the small details because that’s where you can win or lose big games,” the striker said.
“Now we need to step up and improve on those small margins – they’re huge at the highest level.
“It was a tough result so we need to think about it because it’s another big game for us on Saturday against Tottenham.”
Giroud has vowed to give everything to Chelsea from now until the end of the season.
“I’m a Chelsea player so now I need to move on and look forward,” said Giroud.
“I want to give everything for the team and it’s a personal target for me to play as much as I can to play the Euros with my country.
“Right now, I’m 100 per cent focused on Chelsea’s targets and I want to keep fighting to come back on to the team sheet and the scoresheet. Every single game is a big opportunity for me to show my desire to do that.”
