According to former Chelsea defender Mario Melchiot, Olivier Giroud and not Timo Werner deserves to be Chelsea’s main striker due to his hot form.

Giroud has bagged eight goals in 14 games despite only earning a regular start in the past two weeks.

Melchiot, 44, told talkSPORT: “How do you take a scoring striker out of the team?

“Giroud has scored then he scores another goal, now he scores again. The guy is in hot form.

“He is telling him, ‘Frank, I am the scoring guy for your team, put me in’. Frank isn’t going to think, ‘no, I can’t put him in’.

“He has to put him in because he scores the goals… He needs to lead the line at this point.”
