Olivier Giroud scored his third goal in his last four games for the Blues, during the 1-1 draw with Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge.

According to former Chelsea star Graeme Le Saux, Giroud has the best ‘striker’s instinct’ at Chelsea but he isn’t Lampard’s ideal striker because he doesn’t have pace and power.

Le Saux said: “It’s a bit of a conundrum for Frank because Giroud will deliver this sort of level in the box.

“He got the most striker’s instinct for Chelsea and he has earned a start for the next game.

“But I don’t think he’s exactly the striker they want in terms of pace and power that you would expect for a Chelsea striker.”
