In the final minute of added time in the first-half of Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Norwich, the Blues were fired into the lead by Olivier Giroud.
In-form wide man Christian Pulisic was slipped in by Marcos Alonso and beat Todd Cantwell before floating a dangerous cross into the box.
Target-man Giroud wrestled off Norwich centre-back Tim Klose before scoring a tidy diving header from close-range to hand Frank Lampard’s side the lead going into the break.
Take a look at the Frenchman’s opener below:

That makes it four goals for Giroud since the Premier League’s restart in just seven games, the Blues certainly made the right decision in triggering an option to extend the experienced star’s contract.
