After so much hype following the capture of Spanish striker, Alvaro Morata in a Club transfer record during the summer, Chelsea fans have come to realize they could have gotten a better player at a bargain price. Giroud moved to Chelsea in an £18m transfer following Arsenal’s capture of Dortmund striker Aubamayang during Winter window and has already made an impression.
Giroud was on target for Chelsea in their 2-1 win over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge and it wasn’t just his goal but his overall contribution that makes the fans start developing love for him. Morata was later brought on but couldn’t impress. The Spanish striker is yet to open his in 2018, that’s three months already.
Fans are now clamouring for Giroud to be started in front against Barcelona at Camp Nou ahead of Morata. Giroud, not a fans’ favourite while at Arsenal but was surely an important player to the manager who had so much trust in the Frenchman. Morata has thus far scored 12 goals in all competition for Chelsea and majority came off his head.
