Olivier Giroud’s recent appearances have given Frank Lampard food for thought, but the Chelsea boss said Friday it was difficult to give the Frenchman assurances that he would continue to lead his attack.
34-year-old Giroud has not started a Premier League game this season. Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham preferred him, and France coach Didier Deschamps urged the striker to regulate his playing time before the European Championship next year.
However, Giroud underscored his importance in the Champions League on Wednesday when he scored all of Chelsea’s goals in Sevilla’s 4-0 demolition to give Lampard a selection headache.
« It’s not about keeping players safe during game time, it’s difficult to do. « . They want players on the team to train well and perform well, « Lampard told reporters ahead of Saturday’s home game against Leeds United.
« It gives me nice problems. Oli has always done this, especially after the restart (last season) when he was fundamental to getting into the Champions League.
« From my point of view, I have competition for places. Tammy met and made templates. I cannot give assurances, but I never see anything negative from Oli. Obviously, if he plays like last night, he’ll get a lot of opportunities. «
After a mixed start to the season, Chelsea have slowly climbed to third place in the overall standings – two points behind leaders Tottenham Hotspur.
Chelsea have hit a combined league high of 22 goals in 10 games, and Lampard said his redesigned squad is joining now after the club put over £ 220m ($ 297m) in rebuilding in the last Season spent.
« There will be tests along the way if the players play well and are not on the team for the next game due to competition. We’re in a good place, but they can be much better. «
