Lampard considering Giroud for Leeds clash after Sevilla masterclass

Frank Lampard said Olivier Giroud makes Chelsea a better team after he scored all four goals in their 4-0 victory over Sevilla.
Olivier Giroud staked his claim for a regular place in Chelsea’s starting line-up after scoring four goals against Sevilla, according to the last player to net four in a game for the Blues, head coach Frank Lampard.

Giroud scored with his left foot, right foot, his head, and netted a penalty at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan as the 34-year-old became the oldest player to score a hat-trick in the modern Champions League and the first Chelsea player to hit four since Lampard did so against Aston Villa in 2010.

His performance, which followed another match-winning appearance in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Rennes a week earlier, left Lampard unable to deny that the World Cup winner is in contention for a place in the first XI to face Leeds United on Saturday.
