Giroud: “We dominated the game”

Olivier Giroud opened the scoring for the blues as they ran out 3-1 winners against Manchester United at Wembley.

The Frenchman speaking post-match said he is buzzing for the FA Cup final against Arsenal which will be a special game for him.

The 33 year old believes Chelsea were worthy winners against United and he would love to win a 5th FA Cup title.

"I said to the boys I would love to win another one, it would be my fifth FA Cup and we are in another final," 

"A big game against Arsenal which will be so special for me personally. We played very well and we want to finish in the top three in the Premier League now.

"We played three at the back, it's been a while since we did but we started very well. We had them under pressure and they didn't create much. We dominated the game."

Mason Mount who scored the second goal was also pleased with the team’s effort and he is looking forward to a massive finale.

"I tried to get it on target, anything can happen. It was maybe a bit fortunate to see it go in, it gave us room to express ourselves a bit more.

"I always want to score goals and create assists - it hasn't happened for a while but you're always looking to affect the game in different areas."

 "You always want to turn up in big games and I thought we did that today. We came in with extra motivation and it will be a massive final for us - we want to win trophies."

"The gaffer just said we've got two massive finals before we're here again. We need that mindset to try and secure the top four."
