In-form Olivier Giroud has now scored five goals in six starts for the Blues after scoring the only goal of the game as Chelsea beat Norwich City 1-0 on Tuesday night at Stamford Bridge.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Giroud said: “We needed to be patient and move the ball quick against a team who play a deep block.
“We created a lot of chances but it was important to score before half-time. We should have scored more goals as we had a lot of possession. The team was a bit under pressure also because we know we needed the win definitely so we are happy.
“We really wanted to bounce back and we played a good team against Sheffield United. We have done mistakes obviously so we tried to not do it again. This determination to do well tonight was very high. The most important thing was the three points so we feel relief now.”
