The Frenchman scored the only goal as the Blues picked up three crucial points against Norwich in their fight for a top-four spot in the Premier League.

Lampard's side have played some fantastic football since the restart following the coronavirus crisis but struggled for consistency and, recently, have slipped to agonising defeats against Crystal Palace and Sheffield United.

Giroud headed in Christian Pulisic's cross from the left wing in first-half stoppage time to move the third-place west London club four points ahead of Leicester and Manchester United, who both play on Thursday.

They travel to champions Liverpool next Wednesday before concluding their season at home to Wolves, on Sunday July 26.

"We just have to focus on those games one by one - prepare right and show the right attitude". "I want a bit more quality".

"Despite us not being able to do that many a time this season, it's still something that we set out every single game to get and as I said before it only takes half a chance and strikers take it".

And Lampard believes the pair can form a fruitful combination.

'He has never given me a problem, he has always trained brilliantly.

Olivier Giroud says his unusual goal celebration on Tuesday was a nod towards scrabble partner N'Golo Kante.

"When you talk about players, it's easy and natural to look at talent, but you also have to look at attitude and character within the team". "A great cross from Christian I anticipated well".
