olivier giroud

Olivier Giroud has rued the lack of wing play at Chelsea which limited his chances of scoring in the goalless draw against West Ham on Sunday.

However, he believes that the Blues have enough quality to beat Liverpool in the Carabao Cup at Anfield on Wednesday.

After the frustrating barren draw, Giroud said: “It was frustrating. As a team we didn’t succeed in finding the solution.

“We tried too much to play inside and against a strong defence like that.

“It was very hard to combine, especially in the last 30 yards.”

“Maybe we should have gone a bit more on the side and put in more crosses into the box.”

“We are aware about that and we will work on it. We want to bounce back as soon as possible.”

The striker is keen to put the performance on the day behind him with a decent one when they face Liverpool in a cracking Cup game on Wednesday night and in the Premier League on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.

“I keep a positive energy for the next game,” he said.

“I always want to take this frustration to transform it into a positive thing for the next game.

“Now we are going to look at what went wrong against West Ham. Even though we didn’t do so well, we could have won the game at the end of it.”

“It’s disappointing we lost two points, West Ham were happy with this draw. We have two big games against Liverpool this week we want to show our strength, our character.”
