Rennes goalkeeper Alfred Gomis was in utter frustration when Olivier Giroud beat him with a powerful header.
Gomis pulled off a good save to deny Werner’s 1-on-1 shot, but the ball landed in the path of Giroud, who did justice with an unstoppable header.
Gomis who is the replacement for Edouard Mendy at Rennes, was in bitter frustration when the goal went in, as he kicked the post and shouted vehemently in anger. His mood didn’t improve at the final whistle as he was still bitter about the goal before entering the changing room in a not so good mood.
Meanwhile, Giroud has been receiving praise for his effort, and Frank Lampard praised the 34-year-old for his performance.
Lampard said: “That was great from him. Not only that but his hold-up play when he came on, his physicality. I have selection issues because I have Tammy who is playing well, and Oli who always contributes in that way with that professionalism and was incredible in Restart. It’s a good problem.
“Oli will get his minutes, he will start matches because we have a busy schedule. You saw such a reaction around the goal not only because it was a last-minute winner but because it was Oli, who acts like he does every day. It shows what he means to this team.”
