Giroud admits “luck” in scoring before halftime

Olivier Giroud has admitted he was lucky to have scored Chelsea’s first goal before the halftime break.

Degea didn’t keep out Giroud’s effort which in turn rolled into the net and he didn’t keep himself in glory either from Mason Mount’s strike.

"I try to stay in front of my defender and Azpi had time to cross the ball well, and I like to take it with the outside of the left.


"I was a bit lucky in the end because it was a bit on David De Gea, it was so close, but it went quick and I think that is why he didn’t save it."


Giroud also gave his thoughts on the game 


"It is true we lost three games against them, even if we played sometimes very well," 

"We have been punished for different mistakes and the team took the chance to do something about it by not making the same mistakes again, with a lot of discipline, focus and aggression in the pressing. We have done well, even if we have not played the 3-4-3 for a while.

"We were very committed to work all together and we have seen it on the pitch, we have been good in finishing also so it was a good afternoon for us."
