Olivier Giroud is relieved to have finally ended his goal drought as he netted the victor against BATE Borisov in the Europa League on Thursday evening.

I was delighted when we signed him.

It has been a fine start to the season for Chelsea, who, having finished seventh in the Premier League last season under Antonio Conte, have made an unbeaten start to the season and now sit just two points behind reigning champions Man City.

"We defended very well and they defended cohesively so it was hard to find solutions at times and stop them on the break". I love the club and I love Chelsea, I want to play for Chelsea. "It is normal to look around and think, 'With what club can I achieve that with?'"

The best thing about this evening was the result.

'It wasn't very easy to play a good game here.


"[Morata] played for three matches in a row, so I thought it was better to rest at Cobham and have good training". There was all the conditions to play very badly, for the cold, for the opponents, for the pitch, for everything.

"Last season [moving to Palace on loan] was a decision I made because I hadn't played any football really, at the age of 21, and last season was great for me at Palace, 24 [appearances] I think I had in the Premier League, and then to go on and make my England debut".

BATE Borisov hit the woodwork three times in Belarus, where Giroud ended his drought seven minutes into the second half with a near-post header from a left-wing cross by Emerson Palmieri, who had been found by Jorginho's pass. We moved the ball only horizontal and slowly.

"It was better in the first 20 or 25 minutes of the second half".
