Lampard praised Giroud after sealing top spot in Champions League

Chelsea secured a fantastic 4-0 victory over Sevilla in their Champions League group on Wednesday and sealed the top spot.

Olivier Giroud made the best of a rare start in what was a dominant Blues display by bagging all four of his side’s goals and Frank Lampard made nine changes from the side that drew at the weekend with Tottenham.

After the contest, this is what head coach Lampard had to say.

“It was an amazing performance,” Lampard said in his post-match press conference.”To score four goals at this level, Champions League level, against a really good opponent, then the individual quality of all his goals, I know the last was a penalty, but the team quality and his individual input, rightly he gets a standing ovation as he comes off the pitch. And I’m delighted for him.”

“When you play him you know his attributes, it’s important we get a lot of energy around him, people that can run off him and support him. He has qualities to hold the ball up obviously and to convert balls in the box like N’Golo puts in. So I loved all those parts of us at the top end of the pitch.”

“He is the ultimate professional, and I think he’s done that in his career. And I think that’s why with Oli you see his numbers for France and in the Champions League.”

“When I came in he wasn’t always a regular before I got here, but as soon as I came in I could feel the positivity off him as a player, how he wants to train, how he wants to affect people whether he starts or not. And he’s started a lot for us now and been very impactful in terms of how he was in restart and performances like tonight.”
