Following Chelsea’s 4-0 thrashing of Everton at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer hailed Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud for bullying Everton defenders and giving them a torrid time.
The Frenchman led the line in the absence of Tammy Abraham. He scored his second league goal of the season, tapping in from close range after a Willian corner.
Speaking on Match of the Day 2, Shearer said: “He led the line superbly well.
“He bullied the two centre-halves in Holgate and Keane.
“They never got near him at all.
“It helps when they stand four or five yards off you, which was a constant all afternoon.
“His link-up play gave his team fantastic options, bringing other players into the game when they were feeding that ball into him.
“He was too strong for both centre-halves.
“He gave those two defenders a torrid time.
“Absolutely fantastic, he led the line with such aggression, he was superb.”
