Lots of Chelsea FC fans have praised the performance of striker Olivier Giroud following the club’s 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday.

Giroud had been a forgotten figure over the past few months but he was re-introduced to Premier League action with a second half appearance against Manchester United where his goal was chalked off for an offside.

Still, his performance was sufficient enough to hand him with his maiden start of the year and he proved his worth by scoring the opening goal with a superb left-footed strike in the 15th minute.

Besides this, the former Arsenal man also impressed with his hold-up and link-up play with the likes of Ross Barkley and Mason Mount and that capped off a fine performance for which he was named the Premier League man of the match.

As such, a number of Chelsea FC fans have recognised his efforts and some of them have taken to Twitter to heap praise on the marksman, who was out of the first-team reckoning for nearly three months.
