Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been urged to start Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud against Leeds on following his performance against Sevilla on Wednesday night.
Giroud scored four goals to help Chelsea beat Sevilla 4-0 and seal top spot in our Champions League group.
Former Chelsea boss Glenn Hoddle insists Lampard must start Giroud following his performance against Sevilla on Wednesday night.
Hoddle told BT Sport: “We said before the game he has to be given a chance to start and that’s why because he is that good.
“He has to start at the weekend now, he’s scored four goals. I’m not sure Frank would have had him pencilled in to play against Leeds but my word what a performance, different class.
“Take his goals away, his all-round performance was excellent but when the goals come – and like or it not Leeds that’s how he’s going to be at the weekend – he can’t wait to get back out on the football pitch again.
“He had a radar on him, people were playing the ball into him, he was flicking them and he’s got that confidence and belief and it’s very hard to leave him out now and he’s earned that by scoring four goals and playing the way he did.
“He is a great asset and people look at him as just a target man but he is so much more than that.”
