Olivier Giroud enjoyed a pleasant evening against Sevilla to etch his name into European football folklore on Wednesday evening.

The Frenchman became the oldest player to score a UEFA Champions League hat-trick on a record-breaking night, scoring all four of his side’s goals against Sevilla.

What a night it was for the striker who turned thirty-four on the 30th of September.

“Enjoying the night, that was a great win,” he said.

“After that we will rest and see what the manager’s plan is. When you win 4-0 in the Champions League in an away game against a good side like Sevilla it’s always a great feeling and a good performance from the team.

“I will try to carry on like that, finishing the good job of the team; I had good assists from them.”

Asked about becoming a part of Chelsea’s history he said, “It’s a nice feeling to be part of the club’s history, so I’m happy to score goals and help the team win.”

This performance will definitely give the Blues boss a good problem coming into the busy and hectic festive period.

Frank Lampard only had words of praise for the striker, “I’m delighted for him – he’s amazing and deserves all the accolades. He’s reliable and has great stats; the whole team loves Oli”.

Giroud’s performance is a timely reminder of what he has to offer to the team. Over to you Frank!
