- Frank Lampard would have a tough decision to make should Timo Werner, Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham all be on top form come next season.
- Olivier Giroud believes he can still make a mark at Stamford Bridge.
The 33-year-old is wary of the competition Timo Werner brings but affirms he is certain his performance will make striking first choice decision hell for Lampard.
Chelsea striker, Olivier Giroud is aware of the competition Timo Werner has brought to Stamford Bridge and has assured to be at the top notch of his performances so as to still gain lots of play time under Frank Lampard.

Tammy Abraham earlier on being the main striker at Chelsea, lost his spot to Olivier Giroud who picked to an impressing performance after the Corona virus 100-days break.
With 15 goals, Tammy Abraham has been Chelsea’s Premier League top scorer while Olivier Giroud’s after-corona performances has earned him 7 goals across all competitions as he played a major role in the Blues FA Cup final qualification and UCL qualification.
Werner has a thundering 95 goals in 159 appearances for Leipzig record and the Blues hopes he continues with such spirit as he joined his new teammates.
But Olivier Giroud appears not to be intimidated by Werner’s scoring prowess as he discusses with L’equipe on his plans of making the striking decisions a tough one for Frank Lampard.
“When the teams play a defensive way against us, it’s not bad to have a tall striker like me that can make the link. But I am not naive,” Giroud said.Embed from Getty Images
“Werner hasn’t been recruited to sit on the bench. But I will do everything I can to give headaches to the coach when it comes to making his choice.”
The former Arsenal striker went on to express that he had expected Timo Werner’s arrival even before knowing whom the next competition would be.
“Werner’s transfer is an additional motivation and it was inevitable that the club recruits a striker,” said the France international. “Chelsea is a great club, that spends money to strengthen the squad, and I was expecting someone to come.”Embed from Getty Images
“I still have a year of contract here. If I stay here afterwards, that’s fine. Otherwise, it will be another challenge,” he continued as he expressed on his contract with the Blues.
“But I can still play in a good league for two years. I don’t set any limits.”
