Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has earned massive praise for his performance in the 3-1 win over Leeds United, as he played a big part in the victory as a target man.

While Giroud scored the leveller for Chelsea, Kurt Zouma and Christian Pulisic added to the goals for Chelsea.

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy has now revealed that N’Golo Kante and Thiago Silva as well deserved praise for their performance.

Murphy said: “He [Giroud] was excellent but we need to mention Kante’s performance and Thiago Silva.

“They were both superb and Frank was right to mention Leeds’ qualities as well. But Giroud deserves all the credit in the world.”

Murphy went on to sing the praises of Olivier Giroud who had a very good game.

He went on: “If you play the game at the top level, you know how important a striker like he is to the team. He is the focal point.

“He looks so up for it. He’s full of confidence after scoring four in midweek. Of course, all good strikers gamble on space. It was a superb finish.

“Right or left foot, his strength, his presence… everything about him says, ‘Keep me in the team’. He’s rightly in the team.

“People were talking about him leaving, talking about him going in January, he obviously wants to play in the Euros. He’s undroppable at the moment. He really is that good and deserves great credit for his attitude.”
