The France international fired home an important equaliser for Chelsea on their way to a 3-1 win over Leeds, following on from his superb four-goal haul against Sevilla in the Champions League in midweek.

This will surely make Frank Lampard think twice about Giroud, whose future at Stamford Bridge has looked in some doubt after a lack of playing time.
The 34-year-old is in superb form now, though, and has shown he surely deserves to be in the Blues’ starting XI more often.
Giroud has been linked with the likes of Juventus by Calciomercato in recent times, but Chelsea should surely do all they can to persuade him to stay and offer him the playing time he deserves.
