Frank Lampard’s reaction after Olivier Giroud’s hat-trick against Sevilla tonight surely suggests that the leaders will have an outing against Leeds.
Chelsea brushed past Sevilla tonight, thanks in large part to the contributions of Giroud. The Frenchman scored four goals, including a perfect hat-trick, to ensure the Blues advanced to the knockout stages of the Champions League as group winners.
The striker, who has had a hard time getting chances this season, headed behind Sevilla to complete his hat-trick and left to celebrate. The camera passed to Frank Lampard, who seemed absolutely delighted with him.

It is Lampard’s decision that has seen Giroud condemned to the substitute bench. Having witnessed a Giroud masterclass tonight, all while having a beaming smile like that on his face, we will SURE to see Giroud start against Leeds United at Stamford Bridge when the weekend rolls around.
You can’t say he doesn’t deserve it!
