Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham were both on target as Chelsea defeated Crystal Palace 3-2 at the Selhurst Park on Tuesday night.

Giroud scored the opener for Chelsea, while Abraham came on to score the third goal for Chelsea shortly after coming on.

Giroud has been in good form and his goal was his fifth goal in his last seven PL starts for the club starting from a 2-1 victory over Tottenham back in February.

Giroud is pleased with his recent form and is also pleased with the fact that Tammy Abraham came on to do well despite being a substitute.

“I feel very well, I feel good,” Giroud told the official Chelsea website.

“Statistics are very important for strikers and I’m very happy since the gaffer gave me the opportunity to come back in the team again.

“Since Tottenham, I’ve scored five in seven so it’s nice and I need to keep it up to help the team to reach our target.

“I’m happy for Tammy because he came on and he made the difference.

“Obviously when you are the sub, it’s not easy to deal with the situation, but it is very well he came on with a good determination and he had a good chance and I was happy for him he put it in. I hope he’s going to help us to score more goals.

“His goal was important at the end because we conceded the 3-2. It’s always good also for the competition, to step up, push yourself out of your comfort zone, and it’s good for the team.”
