Christian Pulisic provided the cross for Olivier Giroud’s goal in Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over Norwich City.

Giroud forged a good partnership with Eden Hazard during the Belgian’s time at Chelsea and Giroud seems to be doing that with Pulisic.

Speaking about Giroud’s partnership with Pulisic, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said: “Yeah. I hope so, I think so. We clearly saw that with the goal.

“I was delighted with Christian’s movement to run behind on the little angle because that’s what we weren’t doing enough of in the early stages in the game.

“Oli will always be alive to those in the box. If you’re playing Olivier Giroud you want to get balls into the box, you need to play to his strengths, and he gets a really good goal. But the link-up is good.

“It generally could have been better when we’re normally a lot slicker with the passing, but again, job done.”
