It was a perfect performance for Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud as the Blues beat Sevilla 4-0 on Wednesday night to seal top spot in Group E with a game left to play.

Giroud equalled a Frank Lampard Chelsea record after scoring four goals against Sevilla in Spain.

Following his heroics against Sevilla, Giroud became the first Chelsea player to score four goals in a game since Frank Lampard in March 2010 vs Aston Villa, while he’s the first to net four for Chelsea in a European Cup/Champions League game.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard hailed the performance of Giroud against Sevilla.

“He is the ultimate professional, and I think he’s done that through his career,” said Lampard.

“I think that’s why with Oli you see his numbers for France and in the Champions League.

“He wasn’t always a regular before I got here, but as soon as I came in I could feel the positivity off him as a player, how he wants to train, how he wants to affect people whether he starts or not.

“And he’s started a lot for us now and been very impactful in terms of how he was in restart and performances like tonight.

“So he’s a great sign for younger players and for other players when they are not always playing in the squad of 20-plus we have that happens of course.

“So they keep training well, and when they come in they perform like they did tonight.

“That was a really, really complete performance in the circumstances tonight.”
