Video: Giroud Provides Sublime Assist for Pedro’s Chelsea Opener

Oliver Giroud continued his excellent form in the Europa League tonight by providing a sublime assist for Chelsea‘s opening goal.

The Blues hosted Ukrainian cracks Dynamo Kiev at Stamford Bridge, with a place in the quarter-finals at stake, and it wasn’t too long before their superior quality became apparent.

Pedro opened the scoring after 17 minutes but the highlight of the move was definitely Giroud’s cheeky flick, leaving several opposition defenders helplessly looking on:

World Cup winner Giroud can’t seem to get much playing time for Chelsea’s first-team in the Premier League, but his Europa League record this season is pretty formidable to say the least.

Giroud is already on six goals in eight games in Europe so far this season and it’s reasonable to suggest he’ll definitely be adding to that tally – so does he deserve to be given more of a chance domestically by Maurizio Sarri?
