Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has spoken well about the performance and attitude of Olivier Giroud and Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Giroud only just recently returned to the team last month after a failed January exit from the club, while Kepa had to sit out six games consecutively. The duo have made their way back into the team and Lampard was full of praise for them after the game against Everton.
Lampard said: “The whole attitude and focus of the team felt really strong today after the Liverpool win and sometimes I have been searching for why we have played well at home and not scored and there has been something missing. Today there was pure focus within the group.
“We had Olivier Giroud playing well,’ he highlighted. ‘He is selfless and then you must have runners and energy around him to make the most of it. And stick balls in the box like we did for his goal. He is a personality and we need that.
“Kepa has been out of the team and showed character and he has come in for two clean sheets and made saves, and had a brave moment at the end of this game. Ross Barkley and Marcos Alonso have come back in and that is what we need.
“It does not matter if you are four months from the end of your contract or out the team for a month, you have to train every day full pelt, be a brilliant team-mate and when you come in you have to try to contribute.”
