Big Giroud claim made after Europa League hat trick

Timothy Aiyeku



One of Olivier Giroud’s best was seen against Chelsea on Thursday as he delivered a fine performance by scoring a hat trick in the game to help his team with a 5-0 win against Dynamo Kiev.

The French international joined the West London outfit from North London side Arsenal but has not lived up to expectations with few goals to his names, especially in the Premier League.

That is the reason why manager Maurizio Sarri insisted on bringing in Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain from Italian Serie A outfit Juventus.

However, with his great performance on Thursday, Olivier Giroud has been hailed to be an important member of the Blues team with his contributions.

Manager Maurizio Sarri noted that Olivier Giroud has been impressive for his team because of his important contributions and the nine goals he has scored in the Europa League so far this season.

However, the Blues team are still in the struggle of qualifying for the Champions League last season as they are yet to be in the top four of the Premier League.

The only opportunity left for the West London outfit outside finishing in the top for is to ensure they win the Europa League title for automatic qualification.
