Following his impressive performance in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been urged to start Olivier Giroud in Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Bayern Munich.
The Frenchman has rarely played this season for Chelsea but hugely impressed as he scored in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
“He fired Chelsea ahead in the 15th minute with a stunning driven finish, which beat his France skipper Hugo Lloris at his near post by virtue of its power and precision,” The Sun wrote.
“His tenacity in beating Toby Alderweireld to get his head to Cesar Azpilicueta’s thrown then led to Marcos Alonso scoring the hosts’ crucial second.
“If there is any justice Giroud will keep his place in Lampard’s line-up for Tuesday’s Champions League last 16 first leg tie at home to Bayern Munich.
“Although on this evidence you have to wonder why he was left out of the Chelsea team in the first place.”
