Chelsea centre-forward Olivier Giroud insist that he will channel all his frustrations when the Blues visit Anfield following disastrous outing against Spell. The Frenchman and his fellow centre-forward Alvaro Morata were nullified on Sunday as West Ham grabbed a draw. The Frenchman having been involved in the early stages of the game, has acknowledged that he and the Spaniard needs to recover goal form, to reduce burden of work currently on Hazard, Willian and Pedro.
Chelsea faces League leaders Liverpool on Wednesday in the Carabao cup. The Merseyside club is yet to drop a point in the current league season. Giroud has admitted that he and Morata have not lived up to expectation in the current league season, but has vowed to improve, starting with the game against Liverpool.
“I don’t like to say that I’m ahead of another player, that I’m in first position,” Giroud told Goal when discussing his rivalry with Morata to be Sarri’s first-choice No 9.
“I have a fair competition with Alvaro, I played well in the last Premier League game [a 4-1 win vs Cardiff] but I wasn’t at my best against West Ham.
“That’s why I was a bit frustrated and disappointed to be substituted, but the coach made his choice and you have to respect it.
“I will transform my frustration in a good way in the next game. Alvaro and I have to score goals for the team so we need to find the net to help the team reach our targets.”
Sarri after the draw with West Ham admitted that the London club is a year behind Liverpool in competitive nature and sharpness. Martin Keown in his post-match reaction revealed that the Blues lacked ruthlessness in-front of goal and these could affect their title aspirations.
