Olivier Giroud is known for his aerial prowess, and the France international has scored a number of important headers in his career.

Chelsea fans have been impressed with his ability in the air, and his header against Rennes, is one that Chelsea fans were too pleased with.

Giroud was asked his best technical header that he has scored, and he pointed to the goal he scored against Liverpool in 2018 and also against Arsenal in the Europa League final, with Petr Cech in goal.

Giroud told the official Chelsea website: “There are a few! I liked that one against Liverpool because it was not easy. I liked the one in the Europa League final. I like diving headers because it means you come with pace and you have the force of your body.

“Petr can tell you I maybe couldn’t have had a better connection. I went 100 per cent for it and didn’t even think my friend Laurent Koscielny could put his foot and hit me. This was definitely one of the best.”

Giroud spoke about his header against Rennes and admitted that it was a difficult goal to score.

When asked the most difficult type of header to score, he told the official Chelsea website: “When you are static and the ball doesn’t have much power, so you have to generate your own power. The one in Rennes was a bit like that.”
